Answer to your Health Question

Question:

I notice my breast brings out milk when making love with my love.

I am scared, AM I PREGNANT? Or does menstruation brings out breast milk during its period?

Demmy

Answer:

Dear Demmy,

The hormone oxytocin is responsible for the milk let down reflex and is also released during an orgasm, it is often called the love hormone since it is also responsible for a woman feeling as if she wants to be cuddled or feeling as if she wants to cuddle her baby.

Milk production can be obtained "artificially" and intentionally in the absence of pregnancy in the woman.

It is not necessary that the woman has been pregnant, and she can even be well into her post-menopausal period.

Women who have never been pregnant are sometimes able to induce enough lactation to breastfeed. This is called "induced lactation".

Lactation can be induced by physical stimulation and by drugs. In principle-with considerable patience and perseverance-it is possible to induce lactation by sucking on the nipples alone.

Also, some couples may use lactation for sexual purposes.
