I had a previous post that went off in another direction. Is it normal to have a lot of discomfort during involution if you weaned very gradually. We kept nursing until my daughter said there was no milk... for a few weeks.
All of a sudden I feel full and I am very sore. It was recommended that I pump to try to relieve the discomfort. But all I get is a thick yellow/white discharge on my nipple. It still seems like there is more in there too. I pumped a second time and got more.
My gynecologists related some of this to my recent treatment for hypothyroidism and told me I could be lactating again. That is why I guess they told me I could try to pump to make sure I was not getting an infection.
Someone else told me this could be involution. But, does involution cause such discomfort?
