Question by  JohnG31 (47)

Can I still produce milk even though I am not pregnant?


Answer by  Kimi (432)

You may be surprised to learn that you can produce milk even if you do not give birth. Many women who adopt are able to breastfeed this way. According to Medela, a breast pump manufacturer, you can gradually start stimulating your breasts through hand massage and pumping. There are also some medications that can increase milk supply.

Yes, you can. If you have just had a baby, the hormones are already there for your body to produce the milk. If you did not have a baby recently, then there are certain medications that your doctor can prescribe so that you can produce.

As long as you are breastfeeding or pumping your milk, then yes you will still be able to. If you don't pump or breastfeed your body will stop producing milk.

Yes, you can. It is an indication that your hormones are off and that you are producing too much prolactin. You should see your doctor to have some basic blood work done to identify the problem and get on medication to fix it. It is very easy to take care of the problem
