  • It happens. Hormones are weird. You may not have noticed an increase in demand... or your bra isn't fitting as tight on that side and you're getting a little more stimulation that you're aware of ...

    You may have been doing a lot of working on that side (single-arm movements, like scrubbing a tub) or even the mastitis damage is finally healed and it's suddenly working great guns again.

    Who knows?
