Can stress cause my breast milk to dry up?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sharon Gilliland
Pediatrics 36 years experience
Yes: Major stress can certainly diminish breastmilk supply. However, there are things that can be done to counteract the effects of major stress. Drink tons of water (or other non-caffeinated clear liquid) and use fenugreek, an herbal preparation which helps increase milk supply. Dealing with the stress, itself, will also help -- for instance, counseling, yoga and relaxation exercises.

Dr. Barry Rosen
General Surgery 34 years experience
Very, Very rarely: The most common symptom of breast cancer is a lump; others include skin dimpling, nipple discharge, breast pain. There is a rare type of breast cancer called inflammatory ca that will mimic the appearance of a breast infection. The fact is that most women with breast inflammation have a breast infection--regardless, this does warrant physician evaluation.
