I had the Mirena IUD put in nearly 2 months ago, and a couple days after having it put in, i got my period...i've had my peroid for non stop since having it put in. i went back to my midwife a month after having it put in to make sure it was still in correctly (which it was) and she told me that if my period had not significantly decreased within 2 weeks to come back and she would give me a single high dose injection of estrogen to dry up my period.
my question is will this also dry up my milk? i know that estrogen in the pill can negatively effect milk supply (which is why we chose the mirena) but is that a gradual thing that happens over time?
has anyone been in a similar situation?
