I JUST had sex and the condom broke, I'm still nursing, and I don't know if it's ok to get the MAP or not?

Will it be passed into my breastmilk or not?

Ooh, Nancy, I don't know. Do you think you could call a clinic and ask? Miz Scarlet and I were talking and we seem to think it's got the same risks as the pill would for a nursing mother.

The Planned Parenthood EC site says they can also do EC via IUD, so that might be something they can do for you if you want. You can read about it at http://www.plannedparenthood.org/library/BIRTHCONTROL/EmergContra.htm

I know you're in Canada, so I don't know if the United States number will help you, but it's 1-800-not2late
