Good evening. I want to ask if I am a breastfeeding mother, but sometimes after breastfeeding I feel pain both on the left and on the right, even though it can heal itself I want to know what pain is it called if it’s like that? Still normal or not

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In general, there are actually many causes of breast pain, can be due to hormonal changes, menstrual cycles, side effects of drugs or birth control, injuries, large breast size, unhealthy diet, to tumors or malignancy. But in breastfeeding mothers, the most common cause is inflammation of the breast or mastitis. Mastitis is a major obstacle for breastfeeding mothers, because the breast is painful, it can also be bruised, itchy, sore, painful lumps appear, until the nipples secrete pus, which makes the breastfeeding process uncomfortable.

This can be caused by various things, such as:

Bacterial infection Clogged milk ducts Fatigue Undernutrition Using a bra that is too tight Nipple lesions Breastfeeding only one breast History of similar complaints in the past Undernutrition Frequency of irregular breastfeeding

Although painful, this condition can be treated at home first. Among the things you can do is continue to breastfeed the baby as often as possible, pay attention to a comfortable position, and always change positions. Avoid using a bra that is too tight, drinking lots of water, getting enough rest, gently massaging your breasts while breastfeeding, and compressing your breasts with a cloth soaked in warm water to help relieve pain.

If the above methods don't work or the symptoms get worse, then check with your obstetrician for further evaluation and treatment of your problem. So, hopefully it answers your question.
