In brief: Progesterone only

There are several brands of Progesterone only birth control pills.
Micronor (norethindrone) and camila for example. Traditional birth control pills can decrease milk production and are best avoided. Progesterone pills are safe to use while breastfeeding.

but once milk supply is well established- maybe at month 4 or 5, combo piles actually are fine for many women…talk with your doc. prog only pills are a great option but you MUST take them very carefully- DONT MISS ANY PILLS!
