    you can. Sometimes it may slow your milk supply to start with, but it will come back. Just check with your dr to make sure the dosage is ok.

    It got the minipill. I was prescribed it before getting discharged from the hospital. Your doctor should prescribe you something that is best for you and your body, taking breastfeeding into account.

    Were you not prescribed anything upon discharge?! Have you had your PP appt yet?

    I thought you were suppose to wait 6 weeks to start taking BC? I am not sure thought. I dont take BC anymore. I took the mini pill after ds was born and hated how I felt. I made me crazy!!!!

    I would wait til your PP and see what they give you.
