Hi all-
I posted something similar on the Pumping forum as right now I am still pumping full time.
I will probably start the BCP tomorrow morning. I had my 6 week check today and discussed some hormone probs I have been having with the dr. Mainly, I have irregular heart beats that I think are caused by the lack of estrogen post partum. It's pretty distracting and unnerving.
So I used to be on the Pill and it was not this bad. My questions are:
1) are any of you on the Pill?
2) when did you start post partum?

Thanks!!

Yep I'm on Triphasil and started the day of my 6 week check up. Hope things get figured out for you!

No I am not on the pill, never have been for long... I tried once when I was in high school. But it whacks me out!

Your OB should be able to tell you when it is safe to go back on the pill.

Just an update: my pediatrician said there is no issue with Orthotricyclene Lo and feeding baby BM a few times a day. I only can produce about enough for 3 BM servings per day and will likely stop pumping when i go back to work. The Pill definitely has cut my supply as well.

"Hopefully" there are no longterm hormonal effects and the benefit of some BM a day outweighs any amount of meds that pass to baby. I have to trust what the doc says, I spose!

I hope it helps resolve some of your hormone problems. Those are never fun.

It's ok...I kinda like only pumping 2-3 times per day. It's a good compromise.
