Low Milk Production In Patients With Fibroadenoma?
good night, on the right side of my breast there is FAM, and I have a baby who is 3 months 2 weeks old, my milk production is very low, sometimes it doesn’t even come out.. and she drinks only breast milk until she is 3 months old, she doesn’t want to suckle directly from her milk, even when she is expressing her milk a little bit, and the more I come here, my breast milk products are getting less and less.. and my breast size is also very small, not like other nursing mothers, does FAM affect my breast size and milk production???
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. FAM or fibroadenoma mammae is a disorder characterized by the appearance of lumps in one or both breasts, which are characterized by lumps that are round, supple and not hard, can shift and are often painless. FAM is harmless, rarely turns cancerous and is usually affected by hormone levels.
Because it is influenced by hormones, FAM can be more likely to occur in people who have the following risk factors:
Eating fatty foods, junk food, fast food Being overweight or obese Lack of exercise Having a medical condition related to abnormal hormone levels
In your case, having FAM actually has no effect on a person's milk production. You can still breastfeed your child without any problems even if you have FAM. Regarding your breasts that you think are small, this should also not interfere with milk production because breast size is more determined by breast fat content, while milk production from the breast glands. Small breasts with a normal number of milk glands will still produce normal amounts of milk.
Among the ways that you can try to increase milk production are:
Avoiding anxiety, because you are worried that a little milk can actually make milk production less and less Give it continuously to your baby so that stimulation continues. Adequate rest, especially if you are working. Meet your own nutritional needs by consuming vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, bread , milk and so on. Do relaxation Share tasks with your husband so that you are not too tired
