Breastfeeding

Good day

I am 35 weeks pregnant and had to take Fertomid to get pregnant. I did not ovulate or get periods on my own. According to blood test I do not produce enough progesterone.

I would like to know if I will be able to breastfeed my baby? Which hormones are responsible for producing milk?

Kind regards

Progesterone is not involved with breastfeeding. Prolactin is the hormone responsible.
