I have been taking antibiotics this week and it has decreased my supply. Does anyone have the same experience?.

How do I get back my supply?

I haven't taken antiobiotics but have experienced times when illness or medication caused a decrease in supply. Depending on the person, some will find their supply goes back up on its own once the illness or medication is finished. Other women will have to do extra pump sessions and power pumps to get the supply back up.

I assume that you have an infection that requires you to get some rest as you heal so this should be your first priority. Once you are better, you can focus on rebuilding your supply if you need to.

If your supply does not increase on its own, try adding in the MOTN pump, do a power pump once
