Well, I'm sure most of the other women here, like myself, had this IUD placed by their OB/GYN, and they were WELL AWARE we were breast feeding. Most of us had this offered as an alternative to the Pill, BECAUSE we were breast feeding. After having it removed I discovered in the physicians information that there is a checklist the doctor is supposed to go over with you to ask about` your health history and see if there are any contraindications to you using the device. I bet you won't find a woman here that had that checklist reviewed with her, I know I didn't. By-the-way, glad it works for you, #97964, wish we were all that lucky.
