Hello doctor, my girlfriend is 22yrs old anf is not pregnant nor breast feeding but she is having nipple pain and blood vomitings. What might be rsn?
The nipple pain: Is not related to the bleeding, also called hemptosyis. There a few reasons why she may vomit blood but all of them require a doctor visit.

Nipple shield: Assuming your profile is incorrect and you are truly a breastfeeding woman, milk production should increase by maximizing effective nursing ( and possibly using fenugreek supplements).

Lots of ways: Keep your bra off after breastfeeding: let them air dry completely. Don't use a breast pad unless absolutely necessary: the pad traps moisture (leaked milk) like a sweat sock, and can lead to yeast infections and cracked nipples.

Placing a heating pad against your breast & allowing the material to drain can help in the interim. Your pcp may want to determine the extent of the problem & provide specific rx . I don't think an er visit would be worth your time but would get this taken care of soon. ...Read more
If i stop breastfeeding just until my nipples heal will it stop my milk from coming and will the baby not want my breast no more cuz i'm using formula?
Feeding may continue: Stopping breast feeding for few days should not stop the milk secretion. Sore breast is a very common complaint post delivery and lasts from day 2 to day 5.See a doctor, if pain lasts more than a week. Massage and warm compressing of breast usually start the milk flow. The baby should be able to start breast feeding, after a brief interruption and being on formula milk. Don't stop trying to feed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many possibilities: I suggest working with a qualified IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) to figure out what the cause is for your situation. Find one near you at http://www.ilca.org/ Then you can address the cause to help with the soreness. Causes could range from latch and positioning, to a tongue-tied baby, to thrush...impossible to say without observing a feed and examining mom & baby. ...Read more
