Can I take the combination pill while breastfeeding an 18 month old?
This is related to another post I have in TTA, but I currently have a copper IUD and am considering getting it taken out. I can't take the low dose pill or get the Mirena IUD, due to it worsening my depression and anxiety, which I can't have since I'm currently managing it without medication and do not wish to be on medication. I also cannot rely on condoms as that is how I got pregnant with my second. Anyways, I never had a problem with the combination pill pre-kids(estrogen/progesterone) and it was suggested to me that I could take this since my little one is 18 months old. I was under the impression that it completely dried your milk up, so is this not the case as long as you have an established supply? Thanks in advance!
