Should I be worried that my breasts started hurting after I weaned my child?

Should I be worried that my breasts started hurting after I weaned my child?

Not really: Because they are not being drained regularly, breasts will be tender/sore for a few days to a week or so after you wean. Use cabbage leaves to help promote the dry up process. If they continue to be sore 2+ weeks after, talk to a lactation consultant and/or your doctor. Plugged ducts or mastitis would be the concern. ...Read more

Can i be pregnant? My son is 19 months old and my nipples started leaking milk again my period came two weeks late but i did get it. And I have been having morning sickness.

Can i be pregnant? My son is 19 months old and my nipples started leaking milk again my period came two weeks late but i did get it. And I have been having morning sickness.

It's : It's less likely you are pregnant since your period came, but it is still a possibility. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you - whichever is easier for you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

Hi, I am 32 and My question is I should have started my period about a week and a half ago. When I should have started I started spotting it has gone ?

Hi, I am 32 and My question is I should have started my period about a week and a half ago. When I should have started I started spotting it has gone ?

Menses: You did, however, have bleeding at the expected time, correct? Have you had unprotected intercourse? Are you having any symptoms of any sort? I would keep a menstrual calendar, marking the number of days and quality of flow. It may simply be that for that cycle, you did not ovulate. Alternatively, if you have had unprotected intercourse, perhaps a pregnancy has occurred. ...Read more

A : A home pregnancy test is not fully accurate (97%) until about 1-2 weeks after the missed period. There is a possibility if you are just at the time when you would normally start your period, that it could still be too early for a home pregnancy test to be positive. You can either wait another week or two and test again or you can call your doctor and have them test you. A urine test at the doctor's office can detect pregnancy earlier than a home pregnancy test and a blood test can detect pregnancy in as little as 7 days after conception. Good luck! ...Read more

My right breast is hurting checked and i don't have any lumps, never hurt like this before except when i had my son and i didn't breastfeed

As : As breast pain can be a sign of pregnancy, please take a test if you have any suspicious that you may be pregnant. Check your breast and be sure you don't see any redness or areas that appear abnormal. Please see your doctor and have this evaluated. Breast pain can occur from hormonal imbalance for no other reason, but please get this checked out by your doctor. Also check with your doctor to see if you are at an age that you should get a mammogram. If you have any fever or redness then you would need to be seen immediately. ...Read more

My breast and nipples hurt so bad. A week after my piroed last month they started hurting. I should start again in a week or two could i be prego?

Possibly: Breast pain is certainly one of the usual signs of early pregnancy, but most of the time, not way before your period is due. If you are trying to get pregnant, it is possible you could be. Some normal hormone cycles seem to give more breast tenderness than usual, too, so it doesn't have to be pregnancy. If your period doesn't come on, do preg. Test. If it hurts after period, see doc for exam. ...Read more

Im 13 weeks pregnant and my morning sickness went away for a while but now it's back. My mom is worried should I be too?

No: Sadly, morning sickness can be a common side effect of pregnancy. The fact that it waxes and wanes can be common too. If you're at all worried, make an appt with your doctor to hear baby's heart beat, but sounds likely normal.

I am breastfeeding my baby is 11 months , i started to be in birth control but stopped and I have gotten my period can I be pregnant ?

Not quite following: The bottom line is that yes you can get pregnant, even while breastfeeding and on birth control. I'm not clear from your question details when certain things were occurring , so it's hard to say how likely/unlikely pregnancy would be. Even with the best of contraception techniques, except for absolute abstinence, there is a chance of pregnancy happening. Take a pregnancy test and get answer. ...Read more
