minipill side effects?

I just started the minipill yesterday. Has anyone noticed that it affected their supply/caused their milk production to go down?

  • I used it for over five months with no effect on supply.

  • YES!  At my 6 week OB appt. I got on it.... within three days of taking it my poor "girls" were just about empty.  I went from having plently to satisfy my LO plus pumping extra for my freezer stash to nothing... I stopped taking it, started fenugreek, pumped like a mad woman, and upped my water intake and it finally came back two days later.  They say it doesn't harm the BM supply in "most" women... most.  It tanked mine.

    Yikes! Hopefully this won't hppen...I'm drinking mother's milk tea to hopefully prevent any supply drop.
