Will restarting the pill affect my supply?

I have a 9 week old, ebf. Feeding and supply ok so far. Pre-pregnancy I took Cerazette, the progesterone-only pill ("mini-pill"). I wanted to wait longer to restart it, but am having terrible migraines that Cerazette helps with.

GP said it's safe to use while breastfeeding but didn't know about things like supply issues. Can anyone help?

Yes, I've been taking it since dd was about 8 weeks old- she's 6 and a half months now and still bf and not had any other kind of milk smile

Not had any problems
