IVF meds and breastfeeding

Postby PMApsy » Mon Jun 29, 2009 8:32 pm

Hello ladies!

My son is 2 months old, but we already have to think about our next IVF. We want 2 kids, and my husband will be 40 soon so he doesn't want to wait too long. I'm absolutely ok with that.

Ideally, I'd like to try just before I go back to work (I took a year off), so I'm still far from its related stress.

I'm breastfeeding my son, and I don't know what your doctors told you about the IVF meds and breastfeeding. I mean, our next attempt will be another FET; we have one last package... so the drugs are less numerous and "harsh" (Suprefact, baby aspirin, prometrium, estrace). It's the Superfact I'm most worried about, the other pills are basically hormones I'm already producing after all. But given that they would pass into the milk, that would probably mean weaning my little one... or not?

Any info?

Thanks for your help,

1st and 2nd IVF = BFN 1st FET BFP! m/c at 7 weeks. 2nd FET BFP! 3rd FET BFN
Now let's spend the rest of our lives having fun together! Image
