My doctor refuses to prescribe me the patch because it contains estrogen which she claims can reduce milk production. I don't really feel comfortable with the IUD because of my beliefs that life begins at conception (sperm and egg meet) and I can't stomach the pill. Depo Provera also contains estrogen so that's not an option either (wouldn't want it anyways since I've heard too many horror stories). I was just wondering what you other moms have done for birthcontrol while breastfeeding; in particular those who continue to menstruate despite breastfeeding.
