Hard to know: We understand much less than we should about why lactation sometimes does not work. I've blogged about this here: http://bfmed.Wordpress.Com/2013/01/04/establishing-the-fourth-trimester/ seeing a physician with expertise in breastfeeding medicine may help - try amy evans at the center for breastfeeding medicine in fresno.

A 29-year-old male asked:
1st Dx in pregnancy : Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that's first noticed during pregnancy. Hormones increase blood sugar levels during pregnancy. If levels get too high, it's called gestational diabetes. Some moms have had high sugars before pregnancy, but haven't been tested. That's why moms with gdm should have sugars checked again after birth.
A 35-year-old member asked:
Probably : Hormonal birth control might affect milk supply, so it's best to use a non-hormone method, like a copper iud. Birth control that doesn't have estrogen, like Nexplanon implants or the mini pill, is probably better than a regular pill like yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). If you start on birth control with hormones, keep track of how much milk you are making, and consider another method if it decreases.
A 41-year-old member asked:
Should be...: Very little cortisone from cream on your skin gets into milk. Moms applying cream to their breasts should wipe it off before the next feeding.
A 36-year-old female asked:
Yes...: A couple of doses of Percocet to control pain after a surgical procedure should not be a problem. Feel better soon!
