  • Yes you can and it will not effect your milk supply as long as you eat enough and drink enough water. I'm nursing two right now and have been for eight months while on depo and I have a great milk supply.

  • You can. It CAN make your production decrease, but theres always that possibility. You just have to compensate in your diet.
