Metformin & cyclogest while BF?

Hi ladies,

Just wondering if anyone has taken Metformin & cyclogest while BF? The consultant has finally come back to me to say she would support a ref to GP to prescribe met and cyclogest providing there are no exclusions, and then lists BF as an exclusion...

After googling it I'm not sure whether they are or aren't safe to take and if my GP would prescribe? I've booked an appt with consultant on Thurs to try and get some straight answers rather than going through her secretary but I thought I'd ask your experiences...

I'm 6 weeks pg tomo and still bf no1...

Many thanks!! xoxo

I didn't start back on Met until I'd finished expressing...but I never investigated why I shouldn't, as I had to ask for Met anyway to start taking it again (so not sure if it was just I needed a prescription or whether the advice was not to). Is it possible that Cyclogest might affect your supply? Or is the concern of it passing to your baby? Sorry I can't help more xx
