Exluton

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.
