  • No. I didn' t have a period for five months. Between the BC you are on and the just having a baby it will take some time to regulate again.

  • No you probably are not preggo, if you are on your BC!!! You can produce milk for a few months after you quit nursing it is completely normal!!!!!

  • I stopped breastfeeding after a week and a few months later I would spring a few leaks (usually happened when I slept). Definitely talk to your doctor if it's frequent or painful.

  • It is normal to produce milk for a while. It's okay.

  • Avoid ALL nipple stimulation to stop the production of milk. Put a washcloth on your breasts in the shower even. It can take some time to dry up but nipple stimulation will cue the body to produce more milk.
