I did six rounds of clomid over the last couple of years, while still nursing my toddler. At times it cut the milk supply, at other times it increased the milk supply.


We did 3 IUIs, getting pregnant with a m/c for #1, and then pregnant now with #3.


If you look at Dr. Hale's research on medication and mothersmilk, it can give you ideas why I felt it was safe to continue to nurse my 18 mo to 3 year old while nursing.


My RE said that the prolactin levels in my blood were low, so the nursing wasn't affecting my fertility at all. Your mileage may vary, because 10 months old is different than 18 months old.
