Both the estrogens and progestins occurring in commercially available oral contraceptive formulations are excreted into human milk in very small amounts. The American Academy of Pediatrics considers use of oral contraceptive combinations to be compatible with breast-feeding despite rare reports of breast enlargement in the nursing infant and the possibility of a decrease in milk production and protein content. The manufacturer recommends that caution be used when administering ethinyl estradiol-norgestrel to nursing women.
Some studies have examined the effect of progestin-only contraceptives on breast-feeding. The extent to which such studies have bearing on oral contraceptive combinations is uncertain. Use of such formulations have not been associated with deleterious effects on breast-fed infants
I, personally, took birth control pills while breastfeeding one of mine and I did notice a decrease in milk production after starting the Pill.
