Copper Topical - Is it okay to nurse my baby? And will my milk decrease?

No difference has been detected in concentration of copper in human milk before and after insertion of copper IUDs. Nursing mothers may use intrauterine copper contraceptive.

The literature is conflicting, but limited data suggest that there may be an increased risk of perforation and expulsion if a woman is lactating.

Please for more details do talk to your doc, since a infant feed is of utmost importance, please take care.

Best wishes!
