Kiara is 20 months old, and nurses 2-4 times a day. Typically first thing in the morning and right before bed. Sometimes she nurses more than 4 times a day by adding afternoon and evening snacks.
3 months ago I went on Seasonique birth control pill - dr said it'd be ok with nursing a much older child and have little to no impact.
Well I hate the Seasonique pill for many reasons, but I finally am thinking it's also my problem with reduced supply (why it took this long to figure out I'm not sure since I *know* this is possible).
About 2 months ago my breasts shrunk in size greatly (like pre pregnancy/nursing boobies). My milk supply went down too. I've had other physiological issues. Headaches, extreme fatigue, moodiness, etc. Obviously I need to get off this pill.
My main reason for being on the pill is to skip periods aside from pregnancy prevention. I can't stand periods, they make me such a miserable person. Is there another birth control pill I'd be able to take that would bring my nursing relationship back to normal? I'm worried this pill won't stop her nursing entirely! I tried Micronor after having Hunter, which didn't work too well for me (how we ended up with Kiara LOL).
Any experience with this? IUD is not an option, nor is the shot. Just hoping for another version of a pill. Only thing I looked into was Yasmin.
