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 (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.
