Molar pregnancy with lots of milk

I too practice medicine and I am concerned for your health. No long ago I had patient with a similar problem. In her case the milk production was caused by a brain tumor. The tumors are called prolactinomas. They should check the level of that hormone. If elevated then a brain scan should be done once you sure there is no pregnancy. I would think hormone levels would have normalized by now.

Molar pregnancy and milk production
by: Lezel

I have been told by my gynecologist that unexpected or unexplained milk production can most definitely be the result of growths and tumours as well as a molar pregnancy. Molar pregnancies require medical treatment. You should speak to your healthcare provider. Once treatment has been completed and your hormone levels stabilize, the milk production should stop as well.
You will need to monitor future pregnancies to rule out possible molars. They tend to repeat.

Best of luck.

Molar pregnancy and milk production (no baby, not breastfeeding)

Hello, I actually have a quite odd situation. I went to the doctors and had some blood work to check out my hormone and prolactlin levels last week and am impatiently waiting on the results.

Over a year go, april 2013, I ended up having a molar pregnancy and had to have the tissue aborted. since then, my breast have been producing milk with no stimulation and or breastfeeding.

I have no kids or babies and cannot figure out why this is happening. Doctors say they'll test me to see but I think it's far more strange because my milk production has increased far more than ever these last few weeks.

I am not pregnant nor plan to be soon. I actually have the iud Mirena. Has anyone else had something similar happen to them?

can anybody comment or give me some advice to help stop the lactation...its rather embarrassing.

molar pregnancy and breast milk production

Hi

I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for you.

I'm not sure if it will help, because your situation is different and you might not react to the treatment the same as other women who want to decrease lactation. But, I guess you could try!

Have you tried herbs?
