  • The LO version is progestin only and is OK to take. The regular one is very likely to cause supply issues. A few moms DON'T have them...but that's like saying a few people walk away from a car crash when they weren't wearing a seatbelt.

  • I may be wrong but I didn't think you were supposed to take BC while breastfeeding?

  • Isn't that one that contains estrogen? If so it will KILL your milk supply. Progestin-only contraceptives are the preferred choice for breastfeeding mothers when something hormonal is desired or necessary.

  • You cna't take pills with estrogen while BF'ing. It kills your milk supply

  • My ob/gyn put me on the mini pill when I was breastfeeding because she told me the regular pill would affect my supply
