Hormone imbalance causing lactation

Common Questions and Answers about Hormone imbalance causing lactation


Avatar n tn I've never heard of breast plants causing lactation. Other than pregnancy, lactation is usually caused by a hormone imbalance. You should seek medical advice.
Avatar f tn You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped or a female hormone imbalance is causing your uterus to bleed abnormally. Provera is also prescribed to prevent abnormal growth of the uterine lining in women taking estrogen replacement therapy. Other forms of medroxyprogesterone, such as Depo-Provera, are used as a contraceptive injection and prescribed in the treatment of endometrial cancer.

Avatar f tn Dr's changed my blood pressure med to see if that was causing the lactation (Spironalactone) can cause men to lactate they said. It's been almost 3 weeks and I'm still lactating.
Avatar f tn I would speak to your doctor and do what you can to change medications to get off the one that is causing the prolactin, and I think you will find that you will feel much better. Of course, my doctors did not want to treat my pituitary tumor (I was told it was an incidentaloma) and instead I was put in anti-depressants. I do not remember however, if I took the medications to dry me up and the anti-depressants at the same time. In the end, the doctors were wrong.
Avatar m tn And I would dare say, some non-secreting may not really be non-secreting - I was told mine was so and mine were in fact hormone secreting - tests were just not done correctly for various reasons - including lab error, time of testing and that I was cyclical. Medications can interfere as well as the body can do such as in the case of cortisol binding globulin. While I admire such an exercise, may I ask why you want it? It would be a huge list...
Avatar n tn The only thing stressing me out is this. The doc says its either hormone imbalance or pregnancy. I would hope its hormone imbalance any day. Hopefully this will be resolved on Monday with blood tests.
Avatar n tn After 3 months without a period, they found my prolactin (hormone that deals in lactation and suppression of periods amongst other things) levels were twice the far-end-of-normal limit. My doc had me go off the meds for a few weeks to see if they were the problem, or something more serious - after those few weeks, the level thankfully went back to normal (but still no period - yet).
Avatar f tn could I do anything to avoid it till the leak closes or another surgery is made? Could the leak also cause confusion and imbalance? or this is due to hormones deficiency? I dont take any replacement except for 2.
215461 tn?1331866365 I had never had one in my life before I went hyperthyroid. My endocrinologist thinks this is all in my head, but I did not have any stress causing these. I have stress now because I cannot live a normal life. At the hospital they gave me xanax and ativan, and neither ever worked so I didn't bother taking them again. I have tried everything from homeopathy to vitamins.
Avatar n tn I saw a case study of a woman who set out to breast-feed her adopted infant, by feeding formula through thin tubes taped to her nipples, and leading to a bottle/formula reservoir on her back, as well as taking synthetic lactation hormones orally. The idea was that if she did this long enough, the physical stimulation of her breasts and the emotion-linked hormones would produce lactation, and her breasts would eventually 'come into milk' fully.
Avatar n tn without those horrible toxic chemical hormone replacements! Did you know that one of the top hormone replacement therapy pills is PREgnant MARe urINe? That's what I was told at the health food store. I found out that we are gaining "estrogen fat!" Hmmmm...no kidding, Sherlock! We need something natural that our bodies can understand. I have gained 40 lbs and have a horrible history of dual lineage and sibling diabetes and high blood pressure. Yes, I'm freaking out about my weight...
Avatar f tn into menopause as a treatment for severe Endometriosis. I have been on a shot called Depo Lupron with add back therapy which includes 2 hormone pills. The shot is once a month and costs 600$. One of the pills is 100$ per month... all without insurance coverage. So right now, I'm PAYING to experience menopause... crazy right?! lol I have the hot flashes, wakes me up at night. Then I freeze! No appetite except for horrible chocolate cravings. Migraines like you wouldn't believe.
Avatar n tn I have read that some woman's IUD's have displaced themselves, and ended up puncturing there uterus, also causing infection. I believe that may be what is causing this odd smell. Got an apt. set for wed. of this week. Feeling slightly stupid again, hoping I am not just looking paranoid. Hope we hear back from some of those woman that had the ultrasounds.
Avatar n tn My ovaries got an ultrasound, but didn't show cysts. My bladder was also checked and nothing was found. My blood test showed normal hormone levels, except for my FSH which was high. By 36, I was completely through menopause even though all the other women in my family (3 sisters, mother, aunt, 4 female cousins) were fertile through their 40s and had periods through their 50s. I am now 42 and going through another fast weight game right now - 2 lbs a day.
Avatar n tn I am having craziness with my Mirena too. I got mine in October 2007. I have had it checked once because I could not find the strings. The doc said it was still there so I was not worried. Well now I have horrible acne, oily hair/skin and have gained a ton of weight. I had to buy bigger jeans and now they are too tight too. I have not had my period since I got it. But I am slightly worried I am pregnant.
Avatar n tn It took FOREVER for my body to register the right hormone levels to show up on a HPT. I'm trying to keep reminding myself of this... :D I think I just must ovulate late. My son ended up coming about 10 days later than the due date based on my period dates. Or, I just have low hormone levels at the beginning of my pregnancies. Just know that 99% accurate on these tests means that for 1 out of 100 people, it's not accurate! That could very well be you (or me). Trust your instincts!
Avatar n tn i was actually driving one day and i had to pull over because i started gagging to the point that i had to vomit, so i thought for sure i was pregnant, well i guess i was wrong, the shot is a hormone that makes you think you are, it plays games with you i learned the hard way when i got the confirm from my doctors office, so i would just wait till the full 10 days after trigger shot and maybe try to test, im 6 weeks pregnant today, i did injections this cycle with an injection of Ovedril to indu
