I gave birth to premature twins (30 weeks) last March 27. I'm now breastfeeding one twin (the other died Apr 4), who is around 3.4lbs. She is still in the incubator.
I would like to go into contraception and my OB has recommended the use of exluton pills.
I worry that taking the pills will affect the quantity and quality of my breastmilk. Should I worry?
I did a search, since this brand of pill is not one I recognize. What country are you from?
It appears that this pill is a progesterone type of pill that is commonly used for birth control in breastfeeding women. It appears to have little or no effect on the quality/quantity of milk production. So yes, it should be ok to take.
I am sorry for the recent tragedy in your life. I pray your surviving little one will grow healthy and strong.
