I started birthcontrol just this last week and within 6 days of taking it i noticed my milk was slowly just going away. I started to get scared and didn't realize it was the birthcontrol. I analyzed everything i was doing in my diet. What did i change, was i eating something that would cause it to go away. I looked at my daily routine. Did i change something that could make it go away.
When i realized that the only thing i had changed was the birthcontrol then i called my lactation consultant to see what i should do. We have 7 children and we are trying to wait for a couple of years before having another one so that my body can heal. I am too young and scared to get my tubes tied, and we have tried several methods of birth control before that have failed. I have become very angry, and yelled a lot over small minor things. I literately was dr jekyll and mr hyde. I almost lost my marriage because of it.
We finally found a pill that didn't affect my mood, but now it has completely whipped my milk supply. So we have had to switch pills. Our problem with this is, well this is how we have our now baby. The doc switched pills so much to try and find one that would work that i got pregnant. We didn't use condoms, so i guess that is our fault. We aren't mad about it and accept that it was our fault, but are now scared that we may have the same accident.
I have a small latex allergy which is why we don't use condoms. We are looking into maybe using foam, and a few other things. I am so scared to start a new pill. I have so many what if's and none of which a doctor can give me answers. It is pretty much trial and error. But i want more kids and don't really want it to affect my ability to have more babies, my mood, and definitely not my marriage.
Now i didn't take the pill last night and trying to get my milk supply back, which i don't know if it is even possible. I am drinking the mothers milk tea, and eating oatmeal like my consultant told me to. Also drinking a lot of water.
Can a milk supply come back after it has almost went away completely? I'm not pregnant, we took 2 test before the pill. This was to ensure that i could take the pill since i haven't had a period.
I have went from having 4 to 5 oz out of my right side and 3 to 4 oz out of my left to 3 oz total from both sides.
Can it come back after it has went away so much?
