I'd quite like to go back on the pill now and I don't fancy the progesterone only one as I get spots and depression at the best of times - do you know if you can go on the combined oestrogen/progesterone pill whilst breastfeeding? I read somewhere that as long as the baby's at least 6 months old its fine but I don't know how much truth there is in that! I will talk to the doctor about it but I'd like to go in informed first. Thanks lots in advance
