Can I breastfeed while pregnant?

Can I breastfeed while pregnant?

No.: As in you shouldn't. Some women who become pregnant while lactating do continue to produce milk, but the hormone responsible for milk letdown is oxytocin, which can cause uterine contractions and lead to preterm labor. The uterus usually has few receptors for this hormone in the first trimester, so most don't have symptoms in the first trimester. If you're pregnant, it is time to wean. ...Read more

Can a pcos woman get pregnant while breast feeding? if she got pregnant will breast feeding stop? what about a normal woman?

Period is 3 days late, veins on my breasts, pelvis, abdomen, arms, sore bigger breasts, negative pregnancy test, could i still be pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more
