i know theres probably a thread on here
I'm sorry that you are sick!
Being sick definitely hurts your supply. Mine went down around 10 ounces the last time I was sick. When you're feeling better, and are rehydrated, your supply should start rebounding. You can do some power pumping or extra pumps to get back your supply a little faster. Hope you feel better soon!

im finally feeling a little better.. everyone told me i cldnt take meds, and when i went to haileys ped. yesterday she told me i could take sudafed. i wish i knew this 4 days ago!!!
It's a good thing you didn't take sudafed...it is known to reduce supply by around 20%. You can take phenylephrine (the decongestants that say "PE"). Now that I think of it, I do believe sudafed did start making a decongestant with phenylephrine. Just be sure not to take the kind of decongestant you have to buy behind a counter with pseudoephedrine in it. It's the pseudoephedrine that reduces supply. Glad you're feeling better!
that really sucks seeing as how ive been taking it for 2 days now!! damn lol...hopfully it wont mess me up, and if it did these past 2 days hopfully it wont since i obviously wont be taking that again!!! do you think the decrease(if i see one) will be perminent or will it just go back once its out of my system?? ill power pump n stuff if i can tommarow just to be sure i guess.thanks for the heads up tohugh
A lot of ladies take pseudoephedrine (what's in sudafed) to dry up permanently. If you do see a decrease, you can power pump and get the ounces back.
i feel so dumb now...i wish i knew that! at least i
