My 3rd baby is now 7 months old.
If it is actually PCOS, it can be related to low supply.
This article mentions PCOS and other causes of low supply, and also some advice on what to do.
The other thing, you said that the hormone in the pill you took and the Mirena were the same, and you experienced no problems on the pill. However, I am wondering if the dose of the hormone ends up being the same.
I know people have used the Mirena and BF successfully, but I have seen a couple of people here before attribute supply problems to it.
Either of these are issues that I think you might want to discuss with your doctor.
Any chance you are pregnant? Just a thought, even with an IUD it may be possible.
Don't forget the best way to increase supply is to take more milk from the breasts via breastfeeding and or pumping. If you have a decent pump try pumping after bf sessions. It can take some time to see a response so hand in there a bit and keep pumping. YOu may see an improvement after a week or so.
