thank you for your query.
It is possible to produce breast milk when not pregnant for several different reasons.
The hormone responsible for milk production is called prolactin
. It is produced by the pituitary gland
in the brain.
the common causes are-
1.medications such as metaclopromide
2.A rare cause of high prolactin levels is a benign growth in the pituitary gland that over-stimulates the prolactin releasing tissue
3.In older women, a condition called 'duct ectasia' can cause a milky discharge from the nipple
Earlier high dose estrogens and Bromocriptine
was used to to suppress lactation
nowadays supportive measure are used.
To relieve breast engorgement
and pain you might:
Wear a supportive bra
Apply ice packs to your breasts
Take over-the-counter pain relievers
wishing you good health
