Does Colostrum Come Out At 23 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
Good morning, I am 23 weeks pregnant. When my husband plays with me, it turns out the liquid. Is that colostrum?
Hello Dwi Septy, Thank you for the question.
The body of a pregnant woman has begun to produce breast milk long before giving birth. ASI production usually begins in the early second trimester of pregnancy. In the second trimester of pregnancy, you may find your nipples secrete a yellowish-colored liquid or see your bra slightly yellowish in the nipple. This yellowish liquid is known as colostrum. Colostrum is a precursor of breast milk containing antibodies (immune substances) for infants and high nutrition. In some women new colostrum is formed before giving birth. The liquid that comes out of the nipple you mentioned is most likely indeed colostrum and thus you don't need to worry about this condition. However, if the fluid that comes out very much or mixed with blood, please consult with your doctor for further tests.
I hope this helps.
