Can You Take The Day After Pill While Breastfeeding
Yes: Since mom's exposure to hormones in the morning-after-pill is of short duration, any hormones passed onto the baby via the breastmilk would also be of short duration.

Unpredictable: There are so many reasons for skipping a period (pregnancy is the most common), maybe your chasteberry sup could be involved.
