Take a Break have a big feature on the front of this week's magazine "My warning to mums: Breastfeeding left me infertile!" On reading the story I can say "No! Sorry for your misfortune, but it was Anorexia that left you infertile and it is secondary that you were breastfeeding. I am by no means any kind of professional but it is common sense here that applies and no Dr in the land surely would say that it was b/f that left her infertile. So am I wrong or BU??

I don't know because I'd have to read the story to make up my mind

Except I wouldn't read the story because I hate those sensationalist crap magazines.

I realise how unhelpful this post has been grin

I know about the sensationalism part but I read it anyway wink just more angry at the irresponsible journalism I guess...

To be fair, they only get to post that bollocks because people buy and read that bollocks.

You see what I'm saying don't you? grin

LOL who in their right minds take magazines even the tiniest bit seriously and would believe even the date printed at the top of each page (except the terminally gullible)
