Hi all, Posting this in here cos I thought someone might know. I'm BFing so asked GP for the minipill, I just started taking it yesterday, so only one pill gone from pack but last night I got cramps! They aren't too sore just achy pains - like period pains. It doesn't say anything in pack about cramps being a possible side affect. Is this normal? Thought it just may have something to do with the extra hormones in my system or something? Anyone? Ta!

It might just be your body adjusting. I hate to be pessimistic but I went on the mini pill and had a period - bleeding and cramping for 3 weeks that started 2 days after I took the pill. Apparantly it happens a lot of people. Gp after a week of it told me to "stick with it lots of people get breakthrough bleeding as it works differently to the normal pill" but after 3 weeks i'd had enough.
