Breast Pain?

I've been back on the pill for 8 month.

Did not breast feed, pumped for 2 weeks.

I always seem to have a dull ache in each breast, same spot, twds my armpits. Should I be concerned?

  • Im not a doctor, so i can only guess. maybe your milk got clocked up. you should def. ask your OB about it. could be an infection of clocked up breastmilk.

  • Also, go off of any caffeine for a few months- coffee, tea, chocolate, cola- and see if this helps.

  • Sorry, should have said my baby is 10 months now. I'm not sure if a clogged duct would happen this late in the game. I emailed my CNM, hopefully she can help.

  • Yes, get it checked out. I had a similar feeling and let it go for a while. A rubbery nodule showed up and it bugged the heck out of me. By the time I saw a doctor, it was the size of an orange. Had to have it cut and drained. Not fun. Please see someone. Always better to be safe than sorry.
