Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Is I-pill safe while breastfeeding? If not, then what are the alternative measures?

Answered by Dr. Meeta Bansal


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, if you want to use it as an emergency contraceptive, then it is safe during breastfeeding. You can take, but the best contraceptive during breastfeeding is copper-T insertion (intrauterine contraceptive device).

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
