In brief: The mini pill
Most oral contraceptives contain both estrogen and progesterone.
We usually avoid estrogen use during breastfeeding. There are Progesterone only birth control pills though that are fine. These are called the mini pill or a Progesterone only pill. They do not affect breastmilk.
