Does your period decrease your milk supply?


 

DOES YOUR PERIOD DECREASE YOUR MILK SUPPLY?⁣


It is common to have a drop in supply at certain points in your cycle, often from mid-cycle to around the time of your period. ⁣

It can also be less comfortable to breastfeeding at this time. ⁣

This is due to the hormonal changes and is only temporary. ⁣

A daily dose of 500 to 1,000 mg of a calcium and magnesium supplement from the middle of your cycle through the first three days of your period may help minimize any drop in supply. ⁣
