Hello ~

I just got back from my OB and he prescribed Loestrin24Fe for me to take. I am breastfeeding and loving every moment!

I am having a some problems with irritation due to low levels of estrogen which causes the lining of my skin to be thin??? Not all sure what he said. However he said that I would need to take a pill with Estogen to fix the problem. ????? I am not sure what to do. Has anyone taken a birthcontrol pill that has estrogen while breastfeeding. I know one risk is a reduction in my milk. That would make me very sad.
Also, I read that there are unknown effects on the baby due to a slight amount of hormons in the milk.

Please help ~
Many Blessings ~ Rachel
