Pill whilst breastfeeding?
Hi, I had my 6 week post-natal check up today and my GP said prescribed me the pill (Loestrin 20 - I have previously used this for 6.5 years prior to conception), however it says on the box that it should not be used whilst breastfeeding. GP said that it is safe to use 6 weeks after delivery but I am concerned it will affect my milk supply. I exclusively bf so have not taken the pill yet as I am worried it will dry me up. Will speak to my hv tomorrow but has anyone taken the pill whilst bf'ing and was it okay for you? Don't want the injection or other long term contraception options as we are hoping to ttc again next year.
