Breast Out Of Breast Milk When Not Breastfeeding And Pregnant?
Good evening, my age is 39 years old. My child is 16 years old … but why does my breast milk still come out until now?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Discharge of milk from the nipples, one or both, in a woman who is not breastfeeding or pregnant, is called galactorrhea. Galactorrhea can occur normally, but can also be a sign of disease. Normal galactorrhea is characterized by not much milk coming out, liquid, clear color or slight vaginal discharge. This normal galactorrhea can occur due to:
1. Stimulation of the breast, both during sexual activity, due to a strong impact on the nipples or due to excessive activity when using a tight bra.
2. Increased levels of the hormone prolactin at the peak of ovulation.
3. Side effects of certain drugs, such as H2 blockers, antidepressants, birth control pills and others.
Meanwhile, galactorrhea in the form of pus fluid or blood, comes out a lot or continuously indicates that there is a possibility that galactorrhea is caused by certain diseases, such as:
1. Breast infection
2. Tiumor pituitar
4. And others
You should immediately consult a doctor nearby. In order to do further tests to find the cause so that treatment can be given appropriately according to the cause.
Thus hopefully useful.
