40 years old
Hysterectomy with ovaries remaining
Never been pregnant
I am trying to induce lactation for a hopefully successful adoption at the end of the year.
I have read the many websites out there on this subject and I've started pumping several times a day (between work and life in general) for 20 minutes. I also massage my breasts as often as I can. I just started using Mothers Milk tea as well as the herbal extract Mothers Lactation Tonic by Herb Pharm.
I am starting to get some fluid - a sort of clear to sort of yellowish fluid from my breasts.
Anyway, my question is about drinking Soymilk and phytoestrogens in general. Does anyone know if Soymilk/phytoestrogens have any impact, either negative or positive on inducing lactation or on lactation in general?
I have done many online searches and can't find anything that addresses this particular issue.
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated!
