Is it safe to take the morning after pill while breastfeeding?

Can I breastfeed on the morning after pill?

It is an old wives’ tale that you can’t get pregnant when you are breastfeeding. If you are having sex while breastfeeding and you’re not planning on another pregnancy, you need to take precautions. If you have unprotected sex and the condom splits, you can take emergency contraception.

If you have chosen to take ellaOne®, do not breastfeed your baby for one week after taking. During this week you should express your breast milk to stimulate and maintain milk production, but throw away the milk you express.
