Anything with estrogen is bad for breastfeeding because it dries you up.

the doc that prescribed it said that she was 95% sure that it would be fine and that they want you to wait atleast 6 weeks after starting to breastfeed to use nuva ring so your milk supply is there

Any form of birth control with hormones in it will decrease your milk supply.

If you want to go with a hormonal form of birth control, it needs to be something that is progestin only.

It doesn't matter how long someone has been breastfeeding. Anything with estrogen will dry up their supply within 24 hours!

Not any one. Just the ones with estrogen.

You're lucky then. I would discontinue using it immediately if you want to keep nursing.
