Hi! I am actually posting this for a friend. She has just told ne thst she has been lactating for about a year nowand she doesnt know why. She does not have children. She had a pregnancy go wrong very early in term about 6 months prior to this starting. The only other changes in her life style have been positive ones......vitamins, healthy diet, no longer on any medications for depression or anxiety or taking anything with hormones in it. So, we are not really sure why this is happening. I dont think she is lactating enough to support a child's eating habits....but she says if she leaves her breasts aline for a couple days they will start to get swollen and she just basically hand expresses just enough to relieve her. I have explained supply and demand to her and she assures me she does this as little as possible and there is very little to no nipple stimulation. She does not want to take any medications to remedy this but is open to anything natural.
Does anyone have thoughts on this? what could have caused it to begin with and fir it to continue for so long? Thanks so much for your help!
