Expectant mommy through surrogacy - 03/08/16 11:41 PM

Hi There,

very glad to be part of this forum. I'm following the accelerated protocol in the hope of being able to breastfeed our baby, and looking for any support I can find..

I was on Microgestin and Domperidone for last 35 days, After little more than 24 hours after taking my last bcp I started pumping with Medela Symphony pump. I am doing nighttime pumping also once between 1 and 5 AM.

On the second day of pumping (yesterday) I started getting cramps like in menstruation and light bleeding. It has been very light but it is there. Can I at this point continue the domperidone and pumping and can be successful? No lactation yet..please could you advise?

My understanding is that you should get a period (cramps, bleeding, etc) when you stop the BCP, so the fact that you are sounds very normal. Good luck to you!

Agreed. After stopping the birth control you can get your period. How is everything going?

I am attempting the accelerated protocol as well! My son just turned 5 months and i don't want to waste more time. I would love to follow you on your journey. I wonder how the Microgestin worked for you. I'm wondering if this would be better than the Microgestin, Ortho 1/35, or Yasmin. I'm curious about how these four bcps compare? Which is more better/effective in producing really fast results for the accelerated protocol?
