    Good evening mam, Yes! Some studies have shown that a little amount of the steroids in contraceptive pills can be secreted in breast milk. Using pill while breast feeding has also been found to reduce the quality and quantity of your breast milk. I will advice you contact your family planning provider for other options apart from pills. Do have a nice night
