Thank you for writing about this Depo issue on your wonderful blog. My only wish is that all of the young (and not so young)mommas that I work with everyday had access to the internet to read your work and words. Thanks for being an inspiration!

Very newsworthy article. Appalling that women could be given this drug without being fully informed to its affects on lactation. I will be including a link to this blog post in my RSS feed, Breastfeeding Daily Tip and News for the next two weeks.

You know big pharma isn't making any money if women use ecological breastfeeding as contraception... *rolls eyes*

When I sought support for infertility in on-line infertility communities, I read story after story of women having trouble conceiving long after taking Depo Provera--long after it should have stopped functioning as birth control for those women. I don't know anything about its effects on milk supply (very interesting what you have to say on this) but I would never use it based on the horror stories I've heard about subsequent infertility.

The idea that women are being given birth control (permanent or temporary) is reprehensible. I believe strongly in child spacing and family planning, but forcing a contraceptive on an unknowing woman (especially in the fog that can occur after giving birth) has no moral justification. The potential side effects, particularly those that affect the baby, make the doctors' choice in these situations even more egregious. In this situation, I feel that community and individual education and ongoing support from lactation consultants and EDUCATED physicians could help establish more nursing relationships between low-income mothers and their babies, leading to a reduction in fertility rates.

As an aside, I have never experienced Depo Provera's negative side effects on nursing, but I do believe it was responsible for several months of terrible, migraine-style headaches in my case.
