I’m Nursing and Worried That Birth Control is Bad for My Breast Milk


I’m nursing and worried that birth control is bad for my breast milk.

A health care provider can help you pick a birth control method that’s safe to use while breastfeeding. Some options, like the IUD, are safe and provide super low-maintenance protection for up to 12 years—and low maintenance is important when you’re busy being a mom!

Find a health center where you can talk about your options.
