    Default Weird question: wine and plugged ducts??

    I have a tendency toward plugged ducts - I get one maybe once a month, but it always resolves within 48 hours, I take lecithin etc, so it's not too much of a nuisance. But I think I've noticed that I seem to get them after I've had a glass or two of wine. I've googled it and there's nothing out there about it so maybe it's just a coincidence. Anyone else noticed this??? just wondering

    would the glass or two of wine go along with fancy night gown or push up bra?

    I get frequent plugged ducts as well. I've found that mine often happen if I haven't been staying hydrated enough so I always make sure to drink alot of water every day. Perhaps the alcohol, since it is a diuretic, is making you slightly dehydrated . I would try drinking extra water whenever you drink wine and see if this helps.

    I agree wine does dehydrate you.. If you partake try to match your water intake and see if that helps.. I am a big wine person I like a glass with dinner and it made my let down happen easier never had any duct probelms but when I did the couselor reccomended I wasn't getting enough water....

    Yeah, I definitely could stand to drink more water. (I could also stand to drink more wine, but oh well ) I think that must be it.
