    It is one of the options of contraceptive for breastfeeding mothers because it has only one of the hormone that will prevent pregnancy without any effect on your breastmilk production. It can be taken every 12 weeks or 8 weeks depending on which type.It has a side effect of not wearing off on time after stopping so you might consider that when if you want to choose it.
