Pumping time?

Do you pump for a certain amount of time or ounces? I was told in the beginning I need to pump for at least 15 minutes by the lactation consultant at te hospital. Well I fill up both 5 ounce bottles in less than 5 minutes. So of I actually kept pumping I would be encouraging a huge oversupply. In 13 weeks and still pump for less than 10 minutes and stop around 5 ounces total. I have turned the strength of my pump down. So does it matter that I am pumping for such a small amount of time? Would it make a difference on my supply if I cranked the pump back up and pumped for just a couple minutes and got at least a feeding out each session?
