I miscarriage some months back and had a breast engorgement which lasted for about two weeks. I have been having this pain in my right breast anytime i touch my breast. What can it be, please help!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry to hear about your loss ! :(
I think this is mainly caused by elevated levels of estrogen and progesterone while pregnant, which always affects the breasts.So when you are no longer pregnant,these hormone get sort of confused and it takes some time for your body to adjust.
Things should get back to normal,but if you are worried and the pain is excessive,then a visit to your doctor would be advisable for evaluation.
