Lactation without pregnancy typically occurs in women of childbearing age, mostly affecting women between the ages of 16 and 40. It is commonly causes by high levels of hormones in the system due to a number of factors. The high hormone levels can be caused by natural bodily changes that occur for every woman at specific points in her life. The high levels of hormones may also be a side effect of taking certain medications and the lactation will cease once the medications are out of the woman’s system. Other reasons why lactation may occur include an unnoticed miscarriage, which may be dismissed as a painful menstrual period, and a glandular issue causing a hormonal imbalance.
Although lactation without pregnancy is generally harmless, it may be an indication of a greater problem. If the lactation is caused by a hormonal imbalance, it is very important for the hormonal imbalance be corrected before it can cause more serious issues.
If a woman is experiencing lactation without pregnancy, she should be examined by her medical professional as soon as possible to ensure that her health is not in jeopardy. The medical professional will be able to find the reason for the lactation and be able to advise the woman on the best course of action to take to remedy the situation. If the condition is caused by a natural adjustment in the hormones of the body, the only course of action may be to wait until the levels of hormones have adjusted to the proper amounts.
Lactation without pregnancy may be benign, but may also be a symptom of a greater issue. All cases of lactation in the absence of pregnancy should be examined by a medical professional to ensure that the woman is still healthy and there are no underlying issues that could cause harm to the woman. Most cases of non-pregnancy lactation resolve themselves in time, but in rare cases, medical intervention may be needed.
