Causes Of Pain And Enlargement Of Breast Size After Miscarriage?
Hello. I want to ask. A few days ago, my sister had a miscarriage at the age of 5 months. What I want to ask, the day after the miscarriage, she felt a terrible pain in her breasts followed by a breast size measurement. Is this natural? What should my sister do?. R nPlease explain 🙏
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Miscarriage can occur at any gestation between 0 and 20 weeks. The triggers for a miscarriage can vary, from abnormalities originating from the mother (for example due to uncontrolled diabetes or hypertension, infection), the fetus (for example due to chromosomal abnormalities), to environmental factors (for example due to exposure to cigarettes, alcohol, radiation, or other toxins. ).
After a miscarriage, the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can take some time to get back into balance to normal. Therefore, it is natural for your brother to experience pain and enlarged breasts. This is most likely due to the proliferation of breast parenchyma cells induced by the residual pregnancy hormones from her previous pregnancy. It could also be followed by the release of breast milk (breast milk) at a later date.
As the hormonal conditions in your brother's body return to the way they were before pregnancy, the complaints will generally improve within 1 to 2 weeks.
No need to worry, ok? You can tell your sister to stay calm and take the following steps to help resolve her complaint:
Compress the breasts using a warm compress while pressing a little. If the pain is very intense, your sister could also take pain medications, such as paracetamol. Avoid using bras or clothes that are too tight Calm your mind, and don't stress. Exercise regularly Keep breasts clean. Eat and drink healthy If the complaint does not improve or the swelling is getting bigger, do not hesitate to ask your brother to have his complaint checked by the doctor for further evaluation. It could be that the complaint occurs due to other causes, such as mastitis (inflammation of the breast parenchyma), breast abscess, infection breast skin, tumors, and so on.
I hope this helps.
