If you start birth control pills for the first time on the first day of your period can that period be shorter and or lighter than usual?
Answer . I found that mine was not shorter of lighter, only the following months were changed.
Answer . \nYES!!! It happened to me, and any stimulation to the breasts may make it increase or maintain it for a long time, it happens when you have miscarried, or when your horomone levels are high, for any reason really. It does not mean pregnancy, but a positive pregnancy test does.
Could you be pregnant if you're on the pill and used antibiotics and then got a period a week early and tested negative a couple of days after your period but are leaking colostrum?
Answer . Leaking colostrum only happens during 3rd month of pregnancy and usually nearer to the time of labour. Your most likely experiencing nipple discharge due to a infection. See your doctor about this. \n. \nAntibiotics can lower the effect of the pill.
Answer . Taken from www.bith.com.au:. Some women will try and express colostrum from their breasts during pregnancy. If you do it is normal to only to get a few drops out at any one time. This can be done by massaging the breast down to the nipple and then compressing the areola , with your fin…gers at least a couple of centimetres behind the actual nipple. Some parents express concerns that if they leak colostrum they will not have 'enough' for their new baby when he or she is born. This is a myth, because the breasts are capable of constantly replenishing colostrum and breast milk every 3 to 4 hours or so. Your new baby will get all they need! This is why women can still breastfeed other children while they are pregnant, and a few will even 'tandem feed' (that is feeding the older sibling and new baby) after the birth.

Are you pregnant if you have abdominal pain and your breasts are leaking colostrum and you urinate frequently?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nMost likely yes. See your doctor for a blood test.\n. \n---answer---\n. \nWhat do you mean by " colostrum" . Any time you press your nipples when NOT PREGNANT liquid will come out your breast. Many women claim that it is indeed true. Even on faqfarm website I have read… so many replies about "colostrum". You get colostrum when your baby is born and it is the first 4-5 days milk that is called colostrum, before "real" breast milk comes in.\nI am not saying that you are not pregnant but it would be too early to have breast leak. It starts only later in pregnancy....\nFrequent urination starts after 6-8 weeks ,however everyone is different. The best thing to do is to do a Home pregnancy test when you have been late on your period,at least a day,you may do it earlier but it can be a waste of money as you need to give time to HCG level to rise.

Is it normal for your breasts to still be leaking milk 16 mths after giving birth you didn't breastfeed?
Answer . Prolactin levels have a great deal to do with milk production and release as does oxytocin (another hormone). Since prolactin is sometimes a component of birth control pills it is possible that milk leakage is the result of oral contraception. The other factor, oxytocin, promotes the em…ptying of breast and is released with physical stimulation of the breasts, either by the baby but not necessarily so. Always a good idea to consult your OB/G. (MORE)

About 1 to 2 min after the kitten is out u will see the colostrums come out the queen (the Mother) will eat it in order to keep her new born from predators and also because she needs it to have enough energy for the next hours. Thus answer is incorrect, what they are referring to is the placenta, …in which the foetus had grown inside the queen. Colostrum is special milk produced by the queen in the first 12-18 hours after the birth. This under normal circumstances provides the first immunity for the new born kittens. However there could be issues with mis matched blood groups in cats. (MORE)

breast start to create a thick yellowish liquid called colostrum normally around 3 months into your pregnancy. Mine began creating colostrum at exactly 19 weeks. Some women not at all. Its a pre-milk substance preparing for the actual breast milk to come.
I wondered this as well but haven't been able to find an answer. I have this problem 4 months after giving birth. Assume it's hormonal and have been told hormones can take a while to return to normal and the length of time varies for each person.
Colostrum extraction has no bearing on the ability to breastfeed, Generally as long as you are able to get a good clean latch, and the baby is extracting milk properly, then you should have no problems breastfeeding at all.

It is important, therefore - to see your doctor, particul…arly if it becomes discolored (yellow, green, or bloody). (MORE)

It has to be, as it contains crucial antibodies and immunoglobins for the newborn baby calf, foal, piglet, etc. to drink in order to ensure survival to weaning time and beyond.
Ideally, a foal should get colostrum as soon as possible post foaling. The current school of thought is that the gut closes much more rapidly than originally thought and that 6-8 hours for adequate passive transfer is the limit.
Immediately after birth. It is the first milk drawn from the mare. It is essential for the antibodies to prevent the foal from being sick.
A small amount is possible around the time of your expected period if you are looking for it by squeezing. It is also possible in early pregnancy.
Some women at the mere end of their pregnancy start to leak colostrum. This is just a sign that their breasts are ready for milk production. It's completely normal to be experiencing this.

It's not unusual to have a small amount of menstrual fluid at the opening of the cervix, up at the top of the uterus, that will be obvious on a tampon, but would have taken a while to show up on your pad.

Colostrum happens after delivery. If you are having breast discharge, it could represent a hormone imbalance, a medication side effect, due to sexual stimulation, or a breast problem. See your health care provider to talk about the next steps to take. Do not squeeze the nipples to elicit more discha…rge, as doing so can confuse the issue. The next time you check should be during your exam. If discharge is coming from your breasts even if you don't squeeze, call your health care provider today. (MORE)
No. She will continuously produce colostrum for the calf even after the calf is born. But separate her from the rest of the herd so the calf does have a chance to suckle his momma and not get pushed away by a milk thief. Better yet, see if you can catch the milk thief suckling on that preg cow. If i…t's another calf, separate that calf with his momma in another pen. If it's another cow, put the cow through a catch chute, put a temporary spiked nose ring in her nose, and let her back with the herd. That nose ring should stop her from suckling milk from another cow. (MORE)

Well you need to be lactating to generate colostrum (not actually pregnant). It's called the let down reflex and it is just that a "reflex". Manipulation of the areola and nipple will if done daily and done long enough can trigger the let down reflex to occur. Colostrum being the first fluid generat…ed by the mammary glands. Actual leaking from the piercing all depends on the placement of the piercings, the gauge and the type of jewellery (rings or barbells). Leakage will generally only occur when the breast is manipulated with a fair amount of force or if the breasts haven't been expressed in some time if you are lactating. The pressure applied to the breast can build up some fluid pressure and cause leakage. However during normal breast feeding the nature drawing action should cause no leakage at the piercing points.

Is it normal for colostrum to change color wile pregnant it was clear when i first started getting it now it is clear with yellow spots?
Yes. Colostrum is typically a range of colors from clear to yellow to white. The golden spots you are seeing just meant the "ingredients" are different and your colostrum is likely maturing. If you are 4-6 weeks from birth, you're getting the mature colostrum that will provide your baby much needed …antibodies, vitamins and nourishment. (MORE)
This is typically a sign that the mare will foal very soon. There is no real term for the leaking, but if enough of it leaks out the foal might not get enough and need a colostrum supplement. A mare will 'bag up' (her udders become full) about a day or possibly more before foaling also.
You start producing colostrum around the third month of pregnancy. You may or may not leak colostrum during your last few months of pregnancy.
Yes. Colostrum's for the calf's health. Without it, the calf will be much less immune to the many diseases of the outside world and be more prone to sickness and death than those calves that drink colostrum right after birth.
