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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Breast pain: You don't state how long it's been since you gave birth. Milk comes in between 3 to 5 days after delivery. This can be very uncomfortable, for up to about 2 weeks.

Any pain beyond this period, call your ObGyn. ...Read more

Breast milk started drying up 3 years after weaning? Pituitary gland is normal. Will this cause hormonal changes and visual migraines?
No: I'm not entirely sure what you're asking here, as breast milk will usually go away after you're done breastfeeding. For it to go on 3 years after weaning is a bit unusual, but i'd be glad it did. If the pituitary is normal, then no, unless you're prone to migraines anyways you should be fine. ...Read more
