Anyone with experience/views on IVF (FET) whilst breastfeeding?

We are keen to crack on with a sibling for our beautiful DD, who is 4 months old. I am EBF her and committed to doing so until she is 6 months old minimum, but ideally I would carry on until she is a year old. I have 2 frozen embryos and I have discussed breastfeeding whilst undergoing treatment for a FET cycle with my consultant. He is happy to do this, but when I discussed it with the nurses, they seemed much less confident. I would be put on progynova and I gather it can interfere with milk production. Any experience, views or knowledge on this topic? My DH is older and worried about his age and it took us 2 years to conceive DD. It is male factor and the frozen embryos are A+ quality. I would be so grateful for any thoughts.

I have no experience in this area but I wonder if the ladies on the infertility threads might know more? You could repost there. Hope you get the answer!

Hi, you might also find more knowledgeable people on the forum. I'm sure I've seen this question asked over there. Good luck.
