    Exclamation Interesting Read: Breastfeeding with PCOS (incl. metformin & supply)

    Just been doing a Google search on Metformin as I'm interested to know if it is safe to take during lactation. Came across the following article which I found interesting and thought I would share as I haven't heard of Metformin being used for low supply.

    Interested to hear what others think of this.

    Thanks for that link. That was an interesting read and can be added to my list of things to be angry about regarding stupid moronic health care professionals and their treatment of me while I was struggling to build any supply with DS. Thanks for posting as I will mention this to FS as I was put on Metformin but it made me very ill so he said to go without it. I would like to try a lower dose or the slow release one as I desperately want to BF next bubba.
