Can breast milk come back after 2 years of stopping?
If a mother wants to restart her milk supply after stopping she can with a bit of work bring back her milk supply. The usual method to do this is through using a breast pump several times a day for a period of weeks. Her body will respond to this stimulation of the breast and nipple by resuming breast milk production. Taking supplements such as ferungeek and blessed thistle also have helped many women with their milk supply. Of course a good diet and adequate rest are also vital.

You stop breast feeding when your son was 3 months and now he is 3 year then also you have a milk in your breast when you squige the breat is it normal or some kind of hormonal immbalance or does it r?
\nIt can be caused by hormone issues, either unexplainable, or due to a pituitary tumor, but most of the time its just apart of nature and being a woman. Once a woman's breasts have produced milk at some stage it is quite normal for them to never completely stop, \n. \nGetting a checkup with your G…P is usually a good start but for the majority of women its just something they have to live with.

Yes. This happened to me. I stopped breast feeding and a month later when my husband and I were having sex, Breast milk started flowing again. I believe it was due to my hormones and due to the stimulation to my nipples during foreplay. However, as with all medical questions, ASK YOUR DOCTOR at your… next check-up. Dont be too embarrassed. They were trained to answer questions much worse than yours! Answer Some women never stop producing breast milk and small amounts may leak out either during sexual intercourse, or a hot shower for the rest of your life, it may be embarrassing if it occurs at a bad time, but it generally is only a risk to your ego. Answer I am experiencing the same thing, I have stopped breastfeeding 10 months ago, and since the weekend I have tender breasts, today I can feel they are full and sore from all the milk and it has started leaking. I have had no stimulation, no sex for at least two weeks, no change in contraception, nothing funny. Everything normal with milk coming in again. I have no idea what is going on. (MORE)
\nBreastmilk leaks for a number of reasons.\n. \n1. The breast is too full to store anymore.\n2. as an automatic response which triggers the letdown reflex, which can either be the sound of a baby crying, or actually seeing a baby.\n. \nThis is natures way of basically saying that the breast eithe…r needs emptying, or that you have a underlying want to breastfeed a baby,.. in some cases any baby really as the entire practice of breastfeeding back in primal times usually had more then 1 mother involved, by this i mean that multiple women would breastfeed each others children.\n. \nAs time goes on your breasts will begin to dry up and leakage will begin to stop. This amount of time differs among women. (MORE)

Answer . A woman's breasts will continue to secrete milk as long as the woman continues to breast feed.
\n. \nMost Commonly, Breast milk is first produced after the birth of a baby.\n. \nBut it may also be produced following the process or Induced Lactation, or Relactation.\n. \nIn either case, overall it is caused by sudden increases in lactation related hormones which trigger the breast to produc…e milk.

That's what they are for. That is why women have them: to feed an infant.
\n. \n. \nUsing certain drugs and herbs can bring back your milk.\n. \nMaking heavy use of a breast pump, or partner willing to suck, alot can also bring milk back.
I still had a little milk two and a half years later. it eventually went away
This condition is known medically as galactorrhoea. What it means is that fluid leaks from the nipple when a woman isn't pregnant or breastfeeding. You say that you had a miscarriage earlier in the year. Sometimes there can be a slight milk production as a result of this pregnancy, even at a ver…y early stage. In half of cases, no cause is ever found for the galactorrhoea. In the other cases, there can be some underlying problems that responsible for it. Common to many of them is a rising level of the hormone known as prolactin, which is produced by the pituitary gland - a small gland found at the base of the brain. Certain glandular diseases such as hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland) may be responsible. If there are high levels, then infertility can result. Since you have been trying to conceive again, you also need to make sure you are not pregnant - this would account for tender breasts as well as the discharge. Although you are still menstruating, if the bleeding is light it's possible that this could be coming from an erosion of the cervix or even some spotting in early pregnancy. I think you should see your GP for an examination to have pregnancy excluded and to measure levels of prolactin in the blood. If you do need some further tests, these will determine any treatment you might need. Where no cause is found, the drug bromocryptine can suppress prolactin production and effectively treat the milky discharge. (MORE)
of course not. That just means your body is getting ready incase you decide to have a baby.
It should pretty much stop in a few weeks. But you may continue to produce small amounts of milk for a few years. There are pills you can get from your doctor to make it stop sooner.
Im still wondering the same thing! I have 4 kids ages 6,5,3,and 1yr. And since my first kid my boobs still leak and i dont know why. It has never stopped. I hate it so much, i have even asked my doctor about it and she always says "well its ok". I think she really just don't know herself. Just reall…y wish i can do something to make it stop. Someone please help me with the right answer:) (MORE)
If you take a medication to stop milk in your breast and it already stopped and after a while it comes again and you do the same thing and it comes again and again?
Looks like you need to visit a doctor. Only a one-to-one consultation can pinpoint the reason for a recurring problem like that.
You need to see a doctor about this. And I wonder why you didn't tell the surgeon? They don't perform surgery if you lactate. It means your hormones are acting up.
That would mean that she was lactating. Usually this occur after a woman gives birth or miscarries a baby. Figure out if it could have been possible for her to have had a miscarrage.
When you're pregnant, you may leak what's called Colostrum. Itlooks like breast milk, but it's actually the very first stages ofbreast milk. Colostrum is thin so the newborn can learn to suck andswallow. Coloustrum is usually leaked in the 3rd trimester (28weeks-40 weeks gestation) Colostrum is wha…t your baby intially feeds on after they're born.The breast milk itself will gradually come in, and it's nothing toworry about because Colostrum is all nutrients.

Well milk only comes from your breasts if your nursing a baby. So you would have to be pregnant to have milk come out of your breasts. You would have to at least have your period and that can happen at any age.
Only mammals make milk, hence the designation mammal, as in mamillary. Avians such as ducks don't produce milk hence there is not milk before ducks.
Some women will begin to make (and leak) colostrum while pregnant. But, the real "milk" usually "comes in" two to five days after the baby is born. Until the milk comes in, the baby is able to get the colostrum which is full of amazing antibodies and nutrients.
my name is jasmine Emily dickhoff. i am 13 years old and i have been of my mothers breast for 2 years now LOL Love ya mwaahhh illlyyyy all :)
No. You only get milk during a pregnancy. During a period, it is just fluid build-up
Well use a breast pad and change it regularly and always empty your breast by pumping it out.
ya if she had a baby other wise no woman have a milk from her breast gave birth or may be pregnant
No. This is simple logic. Breast milk production starts when the baby is born. A baby is not born until it is conceived. Conception does not happen until the parents have sex. You do not have sex until you are married. Therefore, breast milk does not happen before marriage.
The level of hormones that produce lactation is high during pregnancy.In some cases when the hormone level of lactation producing hormones are high even when not in pregnancy can induce lactation.
Colostrum, the liquid that is so full of nutrients, antibodies, etc. and is so vital for newborns, usually lasts about the first two weeks and begins immediately--breast milk follows that for as long as you keep breastfeeding and drink enough fluids.
You will need to first talk with your doctor. She can prescribe medications that will "trick" your body into thinking that it is pregnant and should turn the breast milk production process back on. Another important step is to make heavy use (multiple times each day) of a breast pump. The nipple sti…mulation provided by the breast pump will help encourage your breasts to resume milk production. Depending on how long ago you stopped nursing and how well your body reacts to the program your doctor prescribes, you should see strong positive results within a few weeks. Congratulations on making the decision to resume breast feeding. Good luck and good nursing. (MORE)
Because there is a gland in the boobs that makes milk. Then it can come out the nipple when needed.
There are glands in the boobs that makes the milk. Then, when needed, the milk comes out through the nipple.
Cold cabbage leaves not only helps with engorgement but after using it regularly it will slow down and/or stop milk production.
If you are asking about a minuscule amount seen by you after a shower and toweling off, or by squeezing gently on your nipple. Yes, this is something many women who have breast fed notice. Once you have lactated, it takes very little to kick start the glands into working again. You may even notice m…ore or less at different times during the month due to your ever fluctuating hormone levels. If you are asking about a measurable amount of milk that has suddenly reappeared six years after you stopped lactating. No, this would be outside the "normal zone" and would warrant a visit with your GYN. (MORE)
If your breast are full and will not release the milk, or "let down", it generally means you are engorged. A technique for alleviating the buildup of pressure from engorged breasts it to alternate between hot and cold compresses. Many women also find a hot shower with gentle manipulation can help to… start the flow of milk. The key to preventing engorgement is not allowing too much time to pass in between feedings or pumping.

Not likely. Some women bleed during the early stages of pregnancy without harm to the fetus, but usually bleeding is an indication that you aren't pregnant, or that if you were pregnant you may be having a miscarriage. In addition, there are many reasons why a girl or woman might have irregular ble…eding patterns. Some variation in bleeding pattern is usual during the first couple of years of menstruation. Stress, illness, some medications, and various uterine conditions can also cause irregular bleeding. So can an incomplete miscarriage, in which part of the fetal remains stay in the uterus. The best thing to do to check on the cause of irregular bleeding is talk to your doctor. If you don't have a regular doctor or gynecologist, a Planned Parenthood clinic might be able to help. Some Planned Parenthood clinics have nurses or nurse practitioners that can do pelvic exams, and they might be able to tell you what is wrong. (MORE)
Yes this is possible,,with my first child mx nipples were so itchy that while i was scratching i leaked breast milk and at that time i hadnt even missed a period... Evryones body is different u cant always go by d books..........
domperidone + fenugreek+ breast stimulation. You will need to make daily use of a breast pump to remind your breasts that they have work to do. Your pumping schedule should mimic the feeding schedule of your baby. That is, 10 to 20 minutes on each breast several times a day. With this effort, your m…ilk should come back in no time at all. Thank you for wanting to do the very best for your baby. (MORE)
Sure. It is usually caused by some sort of hormone imbalance, which may result from growth of a tumor somewhere.
very same thing happened to me today, I was just checking the net to see if it is common. I stopped breast feeding about 6 months ago and today I saw a small amount of breast milk leak after she had been crying due to teething. I think that might have had something to do with it
If she is pregnant and its gonna have her baby soon our if she has had it recently it can
Yes. It takes some time until the pregnancy hormones have settled and until then your body is set on pregnant.
If a woman wants to maintain her milk supply she only needs to keep using them. Breast milk production is dependent primarily on receiving the needed stimulation. With regular suckling or use of a breast pump any woman should be able keep up her milk as long as she wants.
It's not milk, it's discharge. If it's dripping or running out of your breasts, get to your gyno ASAP!
Because the breasts can become over full as the mother makes plenty of milk. Lucky the mother and lucky the baby. If "leaking" becomes a problem, the milk can be sucked out with a special device. The procedure is called "expressing."
No there are glands in the breast and your horomones start the production of the milk if you feel your breast they may feel knotty that's the swollen glands.
Hormones such as oxytocin help to prepare the breast for feeding. Once the breast is stimulated by suckling small muscles around the glands contract to help expel the milk. Mechanical suction and manipulation by the tongue also help to bring the milk out.
Many mammals (including humans) will continue to produce milk for years as long it keeps being extracted. Some women continue to breast feed for six or seven years.
The pituitary gland in your brain still puts out the hormone Prolactin whether you are pregnant or not. Of course, it puts out a lot more if you are, but individual sensitivity can vary. Sometimes, just the sound of a crying baby is enough to stimulate the brain to secrete the hormone.
Yes, you will notice that while breastfeeding you will notmenstruate. However, don't assume that you can't get pregnant whilebreastfeeding.
Yes, breastmilk can come back after you stop nursing for a year.It's no guarantee, as many women have different experiences. Somemay not produce milk after a few months, some may produce milkafter a few years.
