Stretch Marks On The Breasts After Childbirth.?
Good evening, I want to ask My breasts have stretch marks after giving birth and have not disappeared until now is normal? And the second, when I push my breasts out, clear liquid, like the new IMD, is it normal or sticky? Because KB 3 months I did not experience menstruation, but at the date usually menstrual breasts are often painful, but after that disappear. Is it normal? Thank you doctor
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically stretch marks are scar tissue that forms when the skin stretches or contracts too fast. Changes in the skin cause damage to the skin supporting tissues, and when these supporting tissues heal, scar tissue is formed which is called stretch marks. One cause of the appearance of stretch marks is hormonal changes, when a person experiences puberty, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Just like other scar tissue, once formed, stretch marks will not disappear. Certain therapies can be given to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, but nothing can really eliminate them. The condition that you are experiencing is a normal condition.
Regarding the fluid coming out of the breast, I want to confirm in advance, when you give birth? Are you still breastfeeding? Does the fluid come out from both breasts or just one breast? Are there any bumps? Does the fluid come out also if the breast is not stimulated (nipples are not squeezed)?
If you are still breastfeeding your baby or you have just stopped breastfeeding your baby, then discharge from the breast is a normal condition. Even if you have stopped breastfeeding for a long time, discharge from the breast does not always indicate something abnormal. If the fluid only comes out when you stimulate your breasts, the condition is also most likely normal. Some possible causes of discharge from other breasts:
certain medicines certain herbal supplements use hormonal contraceptive tumors in the pituitary gland (a gland that produces hormones in the brain) hypothyroidism chronic kidney disease etc. See a doctor immediately if you encounter the following:
the breast secretes fluid that comes out foul-smelling or contains blood that comes out without stimulation. There is a lump in your breast. The breast feels painful. If there are no specific symptoms that accompany, here are some things you can do:
choose a bra that is the right size for your breasts choose a bra from soft material and not much rubbing of the nipples do not stimulate too much on your breasts Breast pain is a very common symptom in women who use any type of hormonal contraception, including also using injectable birth control 3 monthly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
