And what is the good thing for me to have a pregnancy test? Thank you
Hello, Thank you for your question.
The release of breast milk from the nipple when a woman is not pregnant or breastfeeding is known as galactorrhea. The production of breast milk is influenced by the levels of the hormone prolactin produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. Galactorrhea can be caused by a number of the following conditions:
use of hormonal contraception
side effects of drugs such as antidepressant drugs, high blood pressure drugs
tumors of the pituitary gland or other disorders of the pituitary gland
excessive stimulation of the breast for example when having sex
high stress level
Galactorrhea can occur in pregnant women. Some other signs of pregnancy that can be found by pregnant women are frequent urination, nausea, vomiting, mood swings, blood spots (which occur outside of menstrual periods), more sensitive olfactory smell, fatigue, constipation, and decreased appetite.
Regarding bleeding or spots you experience, if the bleeding comes out according to the menstrual schedule, then the possibility of bleeding is menstrual bleeding. However, if you suspect a sign of pregnancy, you can wait for the next menstrual schedule. If you experience late menstruation for at least 1 week, you can do a testpack. Testpack also should be repeated 1 week later to confirm the results.
My advice, you should consult with your doctor about complaints of galactorrhea. The doctor will ask you further about these symptoms, examine you, and conduct investigations such as blood tests, examination of fluid coming out of the nipple, ultrasound, mammography, MRI of the head. From this examination, the doctor will find out the cause of your complaint, and determine the right treatment for you.
For now, please continue to consume a balanced and nutritious diet, maintain your body fluid intake, take regular breaks, exercise regularly but avoid excessive physical activity, manage stress well, avoid smoking or consuming alcoholic beverages, and avoid consuming drugs or supplements that are not recommended by doctors.
Hopefully this information is useful.
