Asi After Giving Birth A Miscarriage Fetus Should Be Removed?
my wife is a fetal miscarriage aged 5 months. Then yesterday it was spurred out. The fetus then the breast became swollen because there was milk, what should be removed from the breast milk for the health of the breast so that it did not get mastitis or breast cancer
Hello Rrakhmat Dayat, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Breast milk is certainly produced during pregnancy by breast tissue so that when the fetus is born it is available and can be given even though the amount is still very limited.
Despite having a miscarriage, the hormones in the woman's body have not completely returned to before pregnancy occurred, so that in some time (several weeks to several months), breast milk can still be formed due to pregnancy hormones that still exist.
This still produced milk must be removed even if the baby is not there because as you asked, if it is not released it can cause a condition called mastitis, abscess or galactocele (lumps of milk that accumulate in the breast).
Therefore, it is highly recommended if there is indeed breast milk in your wife's breast, pump the milk out every time the breast feels full until the milk is finally no longer produced. If your wife's breasts experience other complaints such as pain, pus from the nipple, redness or lumps in the breast, check your wife's breast condition further to the obstetrician for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
