I have a history of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) that mostly came about during raised levels of estrogen (on the pill or pregnant). As a result I can't take BCP's. I also can't carry a baby hence why I am having a baby through surrogacy in April.

Would it be dangerous for me to try and induce lactation with domperidone? Would the process of lactation itself be dangerous for my blood chemistry?

Is it worth the mammoth effort, if one is not doing the entire process with BCP's?

Please help with any information.

These are great questions and I think they are best answered by Lenore. I would email her directly and ask.

Good Luck and keep us updated!
