Sore breasts from weaning

Common Questions and Answers about Sore breasts from weaning


Avatar f tn I am in the process of weaning on hydrocortisone after 4 years of SAI and have made it down to 17.5mg per day but when I rescued to this 17.5 mg my breasts became sore. I've been on 17.5mg per day for 6 days now......feet are sore but I'm doing better than expected.
280369 tn?1316702041 Is there still milk drying up in it making it very sore now? How long will it take before my breasts feel normal again? This was my first time nursing, so I have never been through this. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
Avatar f tn I stopped breastfeeding 8 months ago now and although my breasts dont leak on their own, my husband is still getting some fluid out of them during sex. Should I be on some kind of medication to help dry them out or is this something that'll go away on it's own? We're planning on trying for the 2nd baby in the next few months, so would like to be back to normal before then. Would love your advice. Thanks!
Avatar f tn The simple answer is hormones. Sometimes the hormones make your breasts hurt from one period clear through the next, other times two weeks before, other times the week before, and yet others just during, etc., etc. I wouldn't worry.
Avatar n tn I am worried because my boobs were really sore up to couple of days ago (see my last post) and now just sore when squeezed... so I cannot speak from personal experience about having no pain at all. However I have found out from research that some pregnant ladies don't have any breast pain until much later in the pregnancy and they have had perfectly 'healthy' pregnancies. It seems everyone is different and symptoms from each pregnancy can be vary.
Avatar m tn Which is why you have to wait almost to your next period to take a pg test. So, I am pretty sure your breasts are not sore from pregnancy, but are sore from your body ovulating.
Avatar f tn My breasts have been gradually more and more sore over the past 2 weeks. I actually can see that my left girl is significantly larger, more swollen, than my right girl. I'm not currently sexually active, yet have been on the Depo Provera shot for about 3 years. I am 19 years old and in my first semester of college, so Hello, freshman 15! Besides a slight, slight weight gain, (I am about 5'7 and 130 lbs.), I have had no other changes.
671431 tn?1225775663 My breasts have been swollen and sore for the past two or three months. They also vary in size from day to day or week to week, where they grow a whole cup size overnight, and it is really uncomfortable that none of my bras will fit me from one day to the next. There is no way that I could be pregnant, but I am on birth control. But could the pill actually be making them this bad? I'm starting to get worried about it, and am sick of them hurting all day, every day.
Avatar n tn This isn't really cancer. I had sore breasts for 3 weeks. I thought caffine so I completely removed it from my diet. Still hurts, thought maybe my period, but for 3 weeks I don't think it would last that long (I had a hysterectomy years ago, so I never really know when it is coming). I just need to know why they would hurt so much and so badly, it is almost constant and sometimes it is so intense it brings tears to my eyes.
Avatar f tn So, obviously, we have been bottle feeding. Now that my milk has come in my breasts are really sore and heavy.. Does anyone have any suggestions to help ease the pain? Thank you.
Avatar m tn i am pregnant just about a month with my first and my breasts feel extremely sore. Is it normal to get maternity bras so early? will that help the pain? if not, what will?
Avatar f tn Anyone else have sore breasts & sometimes dull ache from breast to armpit; very uncomfortable at times. What have you done to help?
Avatar f tn Hi this is a bit embarrassing but my breasts have been super sore and sensitive and I don't know why, I'm fifteen and I'm about two weeks away from my next period which is usually a 29 -30 day cycle so it can't be that, does anyone else maybe know what the cause could be?
Avatar f tn sore breasts can indicate either you are pregnant or that your period is about to start
Avatar n tn Is it normal to have sore breasts after a triple bypass.
Avatar f tn Hello, The various causes of breast soreness are fibrocystic breast disease, ductal ectasia, mastitis(inflammation of breasts),galactoceles, benign and malignant pathologies of breasts, referred pain from liver or musculoskeletal system, arthritis of the ribs,costsochondritis and inflammation or sprain of pectoralis muscle. I feel that an examination by a gynecologist will be the best.
Avatar f tn I'm 6 weeks pregnant and my breasts are feeling weird these days. not only sore, but my nipples also hurt.

1097577 tn?1262719747 It could be the case but I usually get sore breasts through my whole luteal phase and sometimes they can be really sore. It's a difficult symptom to be able to tell.
Avatar f tn Anyway it has been 2 weeks since I stopped. I had a little engorgement for a few days then my breasts went soft. Yesterday I noticed that in my left breast (which was the one most fed upon by them both) there is what I can only describe as a thickened area which starts under the nipple and goes upwards (in a sort of north easterly direction if you are looking at me!). Basically an eighth-sized portion of my breast!
Avatar m tn Does it mean that if a woman has liason or sore on her breasts and if a man sucks those breasts and her nipples, can he contract any STD/HIV?
Avatar f tn It will come in, do not worry. Most women have sore breasts during pregnancy but you don't have to be sore to have milk. Your body knows what to do just trust it and the milk will come.
Avatar m tn You have copied my prior answer to this question into this thread. The answers are clear. You cannot HIV or other STDs from contact of your mouth with a woman's breast unless she has a visible sore or lesion due to an STD on her breast- then you have a very low chance of getting the infection that causes the sore. Thus, the answers to this repetitive question are: 1) Can he contract any STD/HIV? No.
