Birth control

I started birth control this past Sunday and I already feel a decrease in my supply :( I'm so sad. Even if I tried things to help increase my supply will it work even if I'm still taking the birth control?

    I guess i was luck with DS. I bf him till he was 20 mths old while taking strong birth control and then while i was pregnant with LO. This time i just started taking the mini pill

    I started the mini pill 4 weeks ago, and while I noticed a significant decrease in supply during the first 2 weeks, it seems to have gotten better. LO cluster feeds for a few hours every night before bed, so that definitely helps. I do not do anything else to increase supply.

    I just started the mini pill this week. I'm seeing a slight decrease in supply. I tried the mothers milk plus supplement but the active ingredient fenugreek made my LO gassy. So now I'm taking a liquid supplement called more milk.

    This is one of the reasons Im worried about starting bc. Especially with going back to work, I have enough anxiety about having enough for him every day.
