Provera and breastfeeding?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

(I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. Mods, feel free to move it.)

 

I've been having a lot of weird on and off bleeding, so I went to see my midwife. She had me get an ultrasound and found that my uterine lining is very thick. So she prescribed a 10 day course of Provera. She assured me that it's safe to take while breastfeeding, but right in drug information sheet it says: "THIS MEDICINE IS EXCRETED IN BREAST MILK. IF YOU ARE OR WILL BE BREASTFEEDING while you are using this medicine, check with your doctor or pharmacist to discuss the risks to your baby."

Now I have no idea what to think.

nak in the dark!

 

hale 2004 says L1 unless taken in the first 3 days postpartum then it is L4.

 

hopefully someone with a later edition can confirm it is still considered L1?

 

eta:  are you still ebf?
