Brief Answer: Better avoid Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. Hormonal tablets are not advisable during breast feeding. It is known to have side effects on the baby like poor weight gain. There are 2 options for you 1) there are specific pills however like progesterone only pills which can be given safely. You need to consult your gynecologist for further assistance and prescription of the right pill to be used. 2) You can try formula with cerelac and avoid breastfeeding totally for the 10 days when you are taking primolutin. Hope I answered your query. Regards Dr Arun
