How much really goes to your breast milk?

Alcohol, birth control, medication, vitamins...
Birth control has certain hormones in it so how can a very low percentage go through breast milk compared to any of the other things out there? Is it a small percent as well? I can't seem to get a straight form of info. One dr says this one says that, one book says this one book says that? Hmmm....

  • There are a lot of things they aren't really sure of. They don't know how much of this or that is excreted. Each body is different as well... one may excrete a lot in her milk, while an other's body may process it better and excrete less. So there is no definitive answer to this question. Best line of defence... when in doubt leave it out!!
