    im on ortho-cept, a pill. I saw a decrease in my supply when I started it so i take fenugreek 3 times a day and have no problems.

    Jip, a dip in supply while on the pill is very normal. I also decided to leave the pill and we also just use condoms. Supply is more important to me now!

    Mini-pill here too. My left breast is producing way less than the right...not sure if this is related to the pill or not?!
