Birth control pills Sronyx and breast feeding

I been getting frustrated with doctors giving me a prescription and telling me it won't affect my baby or my breast milk. Yesterday I went to a woman's clinic to get birth control pills since my son is now 3 months old. They gave me Sronyx. I asked if it will affect my milk supply and they said no. In the label and doing research online it said "Sronyx can reduce the amount and quality of your breast milk. Also, the medication can pass into breast milk and may cause symptoms in a nursing baby, such as jaundice (yellowed skin) and breast enlargement. Until you've weaned your baby, don't use Sronyx." I'm scared of using it since my baby is only breast-feed. So has anyone taken Sronyx and breasfeed?

find a pill that is only progesterone. They have the least side effects and are the only ones breast feeding mothers are prescribed where I live.

Well, ANYTHING you ingest whilst breastfeeding can be passed to baby via your milk.

Call the clinic back, tell them that you do not want to fill/take a scrip that will affect your child. Show them the fact sheet on the drug, and ask for a method of BC that will not interfere with your breastfeeding.
