Patient : I last breat feed my Youngest son in June of 2010. I am still lactating and wonder what I need to do to stop this. I thought that it would dry up once he stopped eating but it has noot. What should I do?
Breat milk can take upto a year to dry up even if you have stopped breast feeding . Each woman is different and there is no fixed time period as such. Moreover it is because of your hormones which again take time to return to normal values. In case it continues for longer than a year then contact youur GP as you may need to conduct certain hormonal tests to find out the cause.All thebest.
