My doctor gave this to me for BC and said it was fine while bfing. Just wanted to know if anyone else is on it and if it doesn't interfere with milk supply?

I was on the ring before I became pregnant.  At my 6 week check up my doctor gave me the prescription for it but told me to wait until I was done bf'ing to start using it.  He said it would affect my supply.  I am not using any bc except for condoms.

It is NOT safe while nursing, it has estrogen in it.  Your doctor needs to be informed of this, make sure to call him!
