  • Go pee on a stick or make a doctors appointment, But NO birth control is 100% effective other than just not having sex.

  • Most women don't "express milk" when they are pregnant. I would be more worried that it is discharge and some kind of medical problem. If you have a neg pregnancy test, you haven't been doing stuff to make milk like pumping or your husband sucking on them, then I encourage you to see a doctor to find out what's up.

  • I never stopped lactating after I had my first child over 9 years ago. Some times my milk production is triggered by either stimulation, or hormones and I actually swell, and even experience a milk ejection reflex when I hear a baby cry, or one of my kids is upset. It's not uncommon.

    I did also experience an immediate increase when I was pregnant with #'s 2 and 3... *most* women experience a drop in supply if they are still producing, but not all.

    If your cycle has been strange, take a test.

  • You need to take a test and call your doctor immediately if it's positive. Pregnancy while using an IUD is life threatening.
