    Default birth control shot expired, what to expect?

    i have been on the shot since just after juniper was born, and have not had a period since... well, before she was conceived. she is 10 mos old now.
    well i accidentally let my time pass, and should have had the shot in january. it wasn't until i got a tiny spot that i remembered it was late to have the shot. i freaked, maybe it was implantation.. but took 2 tests which were negative. we will be trying at some point soon, but were NOT ready yet! i have been drinking wine after juni goes to bed, stressed out, and not taking vitamins.
    anyhow, what should i expect as far as my supply goes? i expired about a month ago, and have had a plugged duct for the last week.. i am assuming my supply may actually go up, but if aunt flow decides to come, maybe my supply will go down???
    no idea what to expect., and totally freaking out for some reason.
    help!

    I think that at this point, there's no reason to expect your supply to do anything particularly exciting. If it was going to go up, it would have done so a month ago. If your period comes back and your supply decreases, you'll probably experience nothing more serious that the usual slight dip in supply and compensatory increased nursing frequency.

    Relax. Have a glass of wine. It's good for washing down your preconception prenatal vitamins.
