Hi everyone! Due to MRKH (I don’t have a uterus, but do have ovaries!) my husband and I are hoping to start our family with the help of a gestational surrogate (still searching for the right one ), and are starting our IVF cycle this summer to retrieve eggs and then freeze the embryos until we find our GC.
I want to learn more about the possibility of breastfeeding my child when that time comes. So I started doing research and several people said I should join the La Leche League.
For the past 5 years I frequently get nipple discharge and swollen dense breasts around the time i ovulate, when it first happened i freaked out and went to my doctor took did tons of blood work (hormones, etc) and even a sonogram of my breasts to make sure it was all ok. Everything came back normal, and the doctors said this is somewhat common and is nothing to worry about. It doesn’t happen every month, but maybe 3-4 times a year. I am not on birth control or any medicine and am a very healthy person on prenatals and CoQ10 for egg production.
I’m wondering if this discharge is a good “sign” that I would be able to induce lactation possibly without medication or minimal medication?
