Ok so I had my 1st baby (baby girl!!) December 27th.. 6 week postpartum checkup went great, everything was good. So i started a birth control pill.. I am almost to the 3rd week of it I believe and I feel SO nauseous, got diarrhea (sorry tmi) and I'm also bleeding. I am assuming it's my period because I am cramping also.. but I'm just wondering: anyone else had these issues postpartum and after starting birth control? I'm freaking out because it seriouslly feels like morning sickness all over again but with the added diarrhea.. I even get headaches like I did while pregnant.. could this just be hormones readjusting?? Gonna call my doc Monday, but until then... please help put my mind at ease!
Some contraceptions just don't work very well with some people. Like me, any contraception that had hormones in it made very nauseous. Try the iud it has no hormones and lasts years. Its Inserted into the cervix. No pills, so remembering to take something isn't a problem.
