    Mastitis is primarily an infection that occurs inside or on women's breasts within the first three months after pregnancy. Sometimes the infection can also affect non pregnant women where it is referred to as periductal mastitis.

    What are the causes and symptoms of mastitis?
    The most common reason behind such an occurrence is malfunctioning mammary ducts in pregnant women. Milk stasis or blocked milk ducts happen due to irregular feeding sessions, the baby's difficulty in sucking or not being able to attach optimally to the breast for feeding. The other plausible reason is bacterial infection that has somehow entered the ducts through a crack in the nipple area. Blocked milk ducts carry a lot of stagnant milk that provides the most suitable breeding ground for bacterial cultures. Steps must be taken so as not to pass on this bacterium to the baby who depends on breast milk almost entirely for nutrition.

    1. It often manifests itself in the form of redness, swelling, pain, fever and exhaustion, resulting from inflammation of the breast tissues and mammary glands.
    2. There is also a palpable warmth and tenderness of the breasts, accompanied by a general feeling of malaise.
    3. Other common symptoms include lumpy formations, wedges, burning sensation especially during breast feeding.
    4. Nipple discharge, body aches and relatively higher body temperatures might also occur in association.

    You must consult with your doctor immediately after the appearance of similar symptoms; promptness is advisable when you are pregnant.

    What problems does mastitis cause?
    1. Most commonly affecting nursing and recent mothers, mastitis poses a pertinent problem in breastfeeding as it causes dysfunctional lactation.
    2. Mastitis is therefore also as precarious for the new born baby who is left without its primary diet.
    3. Doctors often recommend such mothers to continue breast feeding in spite of the disease, after prescribing some antibiotics which usually work in suppressing the infection after a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks.
    4. The affected mothers usually feel too tired to take care of their child while suffering from this kind of infection.

    Preventive measures
    1. Avoid wearing tight clothes or undergarments.
    2. Regularize breastfeeding schedules; do not stop before 6 months.
    3. Encourage your baby to feed especially when you experience of build-up of milk.

    Nipple discharge is a common part of breast functioning, which normally occurs during breast-feeding or pregnancy. It is often associated with the changes of menstrual hormone. The milky discharge post breast-feeding usually continues for up to two years after stopping nursing. The condition normally gets resolved on its own but if the situation persists for a long time resort to medical assistance.

    The following are some of the causes of normal nipple discharge:
    - stimulation: normal nipple discharge can arise due to stimulation; chafing of your breast skin due to tight bras or vigorous exercises.
    - pregnancy: most women tend to witness clear nipple discharge in the early stages of their pregnancy. Towards the later stages, this discharge usually turns watery and becomes milky in color
    - stopped breast-feeding: in some cases, nipple discharge continues for some time after the mother has stopped breast-feeding her newborn
    - hormonal imbalance: some women notice tenderness in breasts and nipple discharge during their menstrual cycle

    What is an abnormal nipple discharge?
    An abnormal nipple discharge is usually bloody in color and is accompanied with tenderness of the breast. Papilloma is a non-cancerous tumor that is often responsible for bloody nipple discharge. Continuous nipple discharge from one of the breasts or nipple discharge that arises without any stimulation or external irritation is abnormal in nature.

    The possible causes of abnormal nipple discharge include:

    1. Abscess- it is an assortment of pus that get accumulated within the tissues of your body. It is usually accompanied by redness, pain and swelling. Boils and carbuncles are types of abscess. Formation of abscess in breasts may result in nipple discharge.

    2. Breast cancer- breast cancer often results in bloody nipple discharge and is often found with a presence of lump in one of the breasts.

    3. Mastitis- it is a breast infection that affects the tissues of the breast and is usually prominent during breastfeeding. Fatigue, fever and body aches are common in this situation.

    4. Ductal carcinoma in situ (dcis)- normally characterized by the growth of cancerous cells in the milk ducts of your breasts, it is generally identified through mammography screening.

    5. Fibroadenoma- in this situation most young women witness an appearance of solid, tumor like structure

    6. Galactorrhea: galactorrhea is nipple discharge of milk when not pregnant or breastfeeding. The discharge can vary in color and can be expressed from either or both breasts.

    What causes galactorrhea?
    Galactorrhea is commonly caused by hyperprolactinemia, especially when it is associated with amenorrhea. Hyperprolactinemia is most often induced by medication or associated with pituitary adenomas or other sellar or suprasellar lesions.

    The release of prolactin from the pituitary is held in check by dopamine from the hypothalamus. Prolactin release is encouraged by serotonin and thyrotropin-releasing hormone. This balance can be disrupted by medication (ie. Antipsychotics), underactive thyroid function, pituitary tumors, hypothalamic tumors, damage to the pituitary stalk, nipple stimulation, chest trauma, herpes zoster, and emotional stress as well as a variety of other factors.

    Galactorrhea is not a disease per se, but more of an underlying medical condition or a symptom that involves discharge of a milky fluid from the nipples, which is not the breast milk. It becomes especially crucial owing to the similarity of the two, when breastfeeding the baby is concerned. It may happen even while you are not lactating or not even pregnant, mostly in menopausal women. Strangely, the syndrome has also shown to have occurred to men and children, irrespective of gender.

    What are the contributing factors to the development of galactorrhea?
    1. Galactorrhea is a major side effect of certain kinds of medication that leads to hormonal imbalance and ultimately leads to quasi-lactation.
    2. Increase in the levels of prolactin can result in galactorrhea which may be due to a number of reasons ranging from excessive stimulation in the nipples and chest area (during sexual activities), or pituitary and thyroid problems. The former is not a major cause of worry. The latter can be fixed with proper medication.
    3. Kidney disease and spinal cord surgery may also result in this phenomenon.
    4. Substance abuse and birth control pills may also be responsible for breast discharge.
    5. At times, the causes for galactorrhea may not be certifiably determined.

    Various symptoms of galactorrhea include:
    1. Milky discharge from one or both breasts simultaneously.
    2. Discharge may be continuous or intermittent.
    3. Density and amount of discharge may also vary.
    4. In case of women, this may have a direct effect on periods, leading to irregular menstruation.
    5. The discharge may occur without pressure or when an external agency is involved.
    6. Headaches and worsening vision are also said to occur.

    When you experience a nipular discharge, the most common tests you should undergo include a pregnancy test, prolactin level exam, mammography, ultrasounds, even an mri for the pituitary gland evaluation. Based on the result, your physician prescribes the required medicines or advises you to stop taking a particular medicine that might be causing this discharge in the first place.

    There are several conceptions regarding ovarian cysts and pregnancy. The main question that arises in the mind of people is whether their wish of getting pregnant getting impeded because of an ovarian cyst? Does ovarian cyst cause infertility?

    Well in this article, you may find adequate information regarding ovarian cysts, pregnancy and infertility.
    When a woman learns that she has an ovarian cyst, she already starts getting palpitation. However, studies say that maximum cysts that a woman tend to develop in their ovary are not life threatening. They are functional cysts, which will be completely vanished on their own after some months. These types of cysts do not cause any complications in pregnancy. But these may end up creating problems regarding the ovulation power of women.

    Now if we focus on the classification of the cysts which can cause infertility, we will find two different types, Endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

    Endometriosis: its effects and remedies
    Basically the tissue endometrium (which lines up the uterus), grows out of the surface of uterine cavity in case of cysts. When an endometrium grows on ovary, it can cause endometriomas, which precludes women's body from producing fertile eggs. In several cases, endometriosis interferes with pregnancy by stimulating scar tissue formation that generally tends to complicate fallopian tubes' normal function. Also, when endometriosis cells secrete substances, it can cause hindrance in the interaction process of sperms and eggs, which further leads to infertility issues.

    Along with such problems, there are other hormonal disorders that can arise with endometriosis which can cause weak nidation and lead to early miscarriages. This particular problem generally occurs in the women between the age of 25-35 years.

    There are handful of remedies for these types of cysts. In many cases, ovulation is being blocked for a certain period. Apart from this, surgical treatment might be given in some cases such as laparoscopy or laparotomy.

    PCOS - its effects and remedies
    The second type of cyst that creates hindrance in getting pregnant is polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS. This type generally occurs when a woman has instability in her reproductive hormones. As a result, the ovaries fail to produce the required hormones, which help the follicles in producing mature eggs.
    PCOS is generally treated with the help of hormonal medication. PCOS is considered to be the leading cause of infertility.

    Other types of cysts
    Corpus luteal Cyst is very common in pregnancy. It is considered to be asymptomatic and tends to disappear within the 16th week of pregnancy. Cysts, which are not over 7 cm in size, can be kept until delivery. However, large cysts generally cause pain and need to be removed through surgery.

    Surgery is always an option for ovarian cysts. Laparoscopy is considered to be safe during pregnancy as there are almost no risk factors. So it is being suggested by health experts that one should not get worried about ovarian cysts during pregnancy, as there are too many remedies to cure them.

    4 Things that Cause Vaginal Dryness

    Vaginal dryness is an uncomfortable and painful condition that usually occurs during or after menopause. The estrogen level in your body gets reduced during this time which eventually leads to vaginal dryness. However, there are other factors that can trigger this condition including certain medications and immune disorders. This is a problem that can affect women at any age but it is visible more frequently in older women.

    Here are some common factors that may lead to vaginal dryness:

    1. Hormonal changes - A decrease in estrogen level that occurs during menopause is one of the most common causes of vaginal dryness. The decrease in estrogen may also occur during perimenopause, during breastfeeding or after childbirth. Radiation and chemotherapy for cancer treatment may also result in a decrease in vaginal lubrication.

    2. Irritants - Chemicals present in soaps, dyes, hygiene products and perfumes may cause allergy in some women. Irritants present in underwear or towels and other allergens like objects and lubricants that are placed in the vagina may also cause vaginal dryness.

    3. Insufficient arousal - Low libido or other sexual problems may also lead to vaginal dryness. Poor sexual performance and early ejaculation may also contribute to it.

    4. Anxiety - Sexual desire can be affected by emotional and psychological factors such as anxiety and stress that may eventually lead to vaginal dryness. High anxiety level in women results in insufficient flow of blood, causing vaginal dryness.

    How can vaginal dryness be treated?

    Topical estrogen therapy is a common method of treating vaginal dryness caused by low estrogen level. Topical estrogen helps in inserting some hormone that your body is no longer producing. This controls the vaginal symptoms to a certain extent but it does not replace as much estrogen as oral hormone therapy, in your blood stream. Lubricants and moisturizers may also be applied to reduce vaginal dryness and make sex less painful and uncomfortable.

    Word of Caution

    Please get a PAP Smear done before starting local estrogen and keep a follow up with your doctor.
