A bit of background my ds is almost 8mo breastfed and since he was 5mo I have been having af like I hesitate to say af for sure since the bleeding was not like normal af more like break thru bleeding. Since may 30 tho i have had bleeding only it hasnt stopped and it is pretty heavy. What I was woundering is it safe to take the chaste tree(vitex) while bfing? I want to take it to boost my progesterone level to stop the bleeding if I can. It has pretty much taken over my life
: I know I should go to the dr and i will soon hopfully. But i would like to try natural remedy first if dr wants me to try meds. I cannot take bcp because of blood clot issues. And I know that the low dose pill is sometimes used but I will not take it would scare me to much. I wouldnt want to take the progesterone pill either for fear of lowering my milk supply. I have read that sometimes vitex is used to help with low supply but I think that was just in the first week. Any one have any info?
