The Mini-Pill

I have been on it since six weeks post-partum. (I started my period at 4 weeks post-partum.)

I definitely have EWM today. I am not charting, because I didn't think I needed to, and I never get up at the same time to take my temp anyway.

Am I ovulating again because DD started solids? She is nursing as much as she was before she did, so I can't see how this is a factor. I'm just confused on this one.

I need a back-up, huh? Is there anything else I can do beside a barrier method?

Thye mini pill needs to be taken at the same time every day. Being late by as little as 3 hours is enough to need backup.

The mini-pill has about a 50% failure rate in stopping ovulation--the other 50% of it's action is thickening mucous to prevent sperm from swiming and preventing implantation of the egg. I wouldn't be concerned about the effectiveness of the pill, just because you are ovulating, the pill will still work via it's other mechanisms--but if you 100% do not want to get pregnant, it never hurts to use a back-up method.
