I understand how LAM works, however, my son is under 6 months, eats every 2.5 hours and I still have my period! (yes, I know, not fair right?!). We are not trying but if for some reason I were to become pregnant, would I still be able to keep on breastfeeding my son? Or are hormone levels necessary for maintaining breastmilk (Prolactin?) not conducive to a healthy atmosphere in the womb for a growing fetus?
(FYI, eliminate BC pills/shots/patches from your answers. I had such horrible experiences with the types I tried, I'll never use it again. Same goes for implantables. The idea of an IUD creeps me out for some reason. I honestly just want to know if I would have to stop breast feeding).
Thank you :-)
