Combination pills (estrogen and progestin) should not be started until six weeks after giving birth. This is because during those six weeks you are at the highest risk for venous thromboembolism. A venous thrombosis is a blood clot that forms within a vein.
There is some controversy as to whether the combined pill may interfere with milk production. For women who want to use this method of birth control their doctor may advise that breastfeeding be well-established and that the baby is healthy before using the Pill again. The Pill should be stopped immediately if a significant change in production of milk is noticed.
Progestin-only pills may be started right after having given birth as they do not contain estrogen, the thrombogenic ingredient. There does not appear to be any evidence suggesting an effect on breastfeeding and milk production.
