I have four children and have breast fed them all. However, I have always felt that my milk supply is not very good and have heard this may be related to low progesterone? Is this true?

Low progestorone and milk supply
by: MissyJean

In my own experience, I had 2 miscarriages (that my doctor believes are related to my low progesterone). I had 2 healthy pregnancies that led to healthy babies.
