Brief Answer: Do an ultrasound Detailed Answer: Hello, Any kind of discharge from the nipples should be analyzed. Bloody discharge from the nipples is a serious matter. Since you had it just once several years ago while breast feeding it’s possible that trauma might have been a cause for that. However, in my opinion any breast pathology should be ruled out first. Do an ultrasound of the breast. Only if it's normal can the pain be termed as cyclical. Most of the time pain in breast or nipples occurs during certain times of the cycle. That’s normal. If it occurs all the time along with discharge, then some tests are compulsory. You can see a surgeon if the ultrasound report is negative. Meanwhile, along with the caps you are taking try primrose oil capsules. Keep the nipples moist. Use a tight brasserie all the time pain. Too much fatty breasts can also cause pain. Let me know if you have more queries. Get well soon.

Brief Answer: probably hormonal Detailed Answer: In that case this pain is probably hormonal or traumatic . Dry nipples cause cracks and are painful. Apply nipcare cream if the nipples get dry. Do the ultrasound also. Apply hot dry fomentation thrice a day. Keep taking the vitamin caps and start the cap I have mentioned before . Regards

Brief Answer: no side effects Detailed Answer: There should be no problem taking both capsules together. You can get primrose oil capsules at any chemist or online since it's a supplement. It's often available as evening primrose oil as the brand name. Usually each cap contains 1300mg and one cap daily is the dose. Along with that vitamin E caps will help. Which is in the medicine that you are already taking-mecgcla?
