Does Mammary Aberant Affect The Production Of Breast Milk?
Good evening, want to ask about mammae aberans. At the moment I am breastfeeding my child, well, does this mammary aberans affect the quantity of breast milk produced by the breast? Thank you in advance
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Mammae aberrant or also called additional breast is breast tissue that is separate from the main breast. However, hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding can also affect this additional breast, so during pregnancy it is very possible that additional breast tissue will also enlarge as well as the main breast. If there are nipples on your additional breasts, they can enlarge and darken.
When it's time to breastfeed, your additional breasts can also produce breast milk (generally not much), but this can make your extra breasts swollen and painful, making you feel unwell because milk is not released, if there is an outlet, then it can also comes a little milk from this additional breast. Additional breasts can also experience inflammation, infection, and also experience an abscess as the main breast. However, the presence of additional breast will not affect milk production from your main breast.
If you experience pain and fullness in your additional breasts when you breastfeed your baby, you can help reduce pain by giving cold compresses to the extra breast. Eventually the breast tissue will no longer produce milk so the pain and swelling will decrease by itself. If you feel unwell when your extra breast is swollen, you can take paracetamol to help relieve pain.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
