Nuvaring and BFing

I have a 5 mth old and my DR gave me Nuvaring for BC. I have read that it can reduce your milk supply. Anyone here using it ring and still having success with bfing?

basically everything I read on it is saying that it will reduce your milk supply. I would definately be careful if you decide to use it...and it takes about 2 weeks to become effective. I personally used the 'mini pill' while I was nursing, but you have to be very careful to take them on time...good luck

It reduced mine and I stopped using it! It isn't a very breastfeeding friendly birth control.
