I can't find it on Kellymom.com or LactMed (you've probably already tried, too). What is it and what is it for?

It's a vaginal cream for women in menopause. My dr prescribed it since I have a very very hard time with sex, never being turned on and achieving. I have clitorial phimosis and it's ruining my life :-(

On box it says conjugated estrogens

My previous family dr prescribed it for me after my first baby, when I was having some problems with vaginal dryness and tissue elasticity (lack thereof). I didn't use it and was told by someone else later that estrogen creams aren't compatible with breastfeeding either.

I would think if it's enough estrogen to potentially increase sex drive then it's potentially enough to lower milk supply. My dr never said anything about sex drive; we were just looking to counteract the mess caused by an OB who did some unkind over-stitching after an unwelcome episiotomy. Closer to 15 months the problem got better on its own.

AS far as I know estrogen in any form is absorbed in the bloodstream and will reduce your supply. I'm not sure if it an issue for the baby to drink that milk but pretty sure she won't have much to drink. Being a cream it might be a smaller amount but I would still not touch it if I wanted to continue bf.

I'm just gonna toss it. She barely nurses nowadays so I want to keep what I have:-/

It isn't likely to have a significant impact.  If you don't have issues with supply try a little and see how it goes.  As a cream....you can control how much you use and just half a dose initially if you are concerned.
