Hello and thanks for posting this query
I think you are talking about contraceptive pill MERCILON
Contraceptive pills are generally avoided in breast feeding females as the drug passes in the breast milk.
You must talk to your doctor for it's use.
I hope to have answered you however you are welcome for any further issue you want to discuss.
Thanks and good luck.
