Has anyone had these problems after giving birth?

I started to pump to my DD could drink my breast milk because she would not take to my boob. It has been almost a month since I stoped pumping and I have been leaking a lot ever since. Now my left bob hurts but nothing is really coming out. I'm wondering what if there is something wrong:[ Also I started my period after 10 months of not having it, and yesterday I got a really big headach and had a fever. I have just the fever today and I started my period today. Could the headach and fever be happaning to me because of my period?

  • It could be mastasis, a clogged milk duct. Do you have red streaks on your breast? I would recommend going to your doctor.

  • well if its really red and hurts it could be clogged i would definately go to the dr mastitis is very serious and it can progress to an abcess which requires surgery. i had mastitis it is not fun at all :(
