Milk hormone therapy

Milk hormone therapy

Prolactin is the hormone that stimulates your breasts to secrete milk during and after pregnancy. The inability to breastfeed due to low milk supply is often the biggest problem with low prolactin, which is why many mothers are looking for treatments to increase their prolactin level. You can treat prolactin with By stimulating your breasts with regular breast feeding and pumping and, if necessary, using prescribed medications.

What is the milk hormone?

Prolactin is one of several hormones produced by the pituitary gland. Prolactin has many different roles throughout the body, but the most important role is to stimulate milk production in women after the birth of a child.

 Prolactin levels increase during pregnancy, causing the mammary glands in a woman's breasts to swell in preparation for breastfeeding. Prolactin also helps with the secretion of milk when the baby is breastfed.

During the first few months that a woman breastfeeds, high levels of prolactin also suppress ovulation. 

This is the reason why a breastfeeding woman does not get her period and therefore does not get pregnant very often. 

However, over time prolactin levels do not remain high with breastfeeding and a woman may start ovulating. 

So the enhanced levels of prolactin are normal if the woman is breastfeeding, on the contrary, if the prolactin levels are elevated in a woman who is not pregnant or breastfeeding then you should consider this condition abnormal.

Milk hormone therapy


  • Stimulate your breasts towards the end of pregnancy, start about two months before your baby is born, start pumping your breasts with an electric pump, this can stimulate the production of prolactin. 
  • Begin pumping for 5 minutes, three times daily, gradually increasing this rate to pumping for 10 minutes every four hours, then to 15-20 minutes every 2-3 hours. Keep doing this until the baby is born.
  • The goal is not actually to produce milk, but to stimulate the nipples and breasts to produce more prolactin.
  • The more your breasts are stimulated, the more prolactin will be produced in your body.
  •  Breastfeed on a regular schedule whenever you can, and use a mechanical pump daily, even after a feeding.
  •  When you begin to transfer your baby to bottles, formula, or soft foods, express your breasts every time you breastfeed your baby. 
  • Expressing milk after a feeding can cause your breasts to empty the milk your baby left, stimulating the production of more prolactin. Make sure to use the pump for 30 minutes per breast each day.
  • Some mothers find that herbal fenugreek may increase milk supply, likely by increasing prolactin.
  •  Get capsules from Adam's Pharmacy, try to take two capsules three times daily with food. If you do not have any side effects, you can gradually increase the dose to 4 capsules 3 times daily. One normal side effect is that urine and sweat may start to smell pungent . Diarrhea may occur, but it goes away when you stop eating the herb.
  • Do not take fenugreek if you are pregnant or allergic to peanuts or chickpeas.
  • Take it under your doctor's supervision if you have diabetes or asthma - asthma symptoms may worsen, and fenugreek can cause low blood sugar. It may also affect thyroid function.
  • Increase Oats, Quinoa and Sesame in Your Diet Whole grain oats contain protein that may increase prolactin, so include it in your meals regularly. The same is true for quinoa and seeds, especially sesame seeds.

Signs and Symptoms of Hyperprolactinemia

Hyperprolactinemia is a serious health problem. It is a sign of a deteriorating endocrine system, a weakened immune system, a disturbance in the hormonal system, as well as a weakened fertility system. Because all systems are affected, it is difficult to determine the exact signs and symptoms of hyperprolactinemia. 

However, here are some notable signs and symptoms of hyperprolactinemia.

  • Unusual and abnormal weight gain.
  • Milky discharge from the breasts
  •  Extreme tiredness and low sex drive
  •  Fertility problems

Causes of hyperprolactinemia

No doctor can clearly identify the exact cause of hyperprolactinemia. Since the problem is hormonal, they associate hyperprolactinemia with hormonal disorders such as prolactinoma, hypothyroidism and PCOS.


  • Prolactinoma: In some people, a small group of cells may form a cyst in the pituitary gland that results in elevated levels of prolactin. These cysts are called prolactinomas or pituitary adenomas. It is unclear exactly how these cysts start.
  • Hypothyroidism: If a woman has an underactive thyroid, a part of the brain called the hypothalamus secretes hormones in an attempt to stimulate the thyroid gland. This same hormone may also cause excess prolactin to be produced by the pituitary gland.
  • PCOS: PCOS is a common problem that can cause infertility by suppressing ovulation. For unknown reasons, some women with PCOS may have slightly elevated prolactin levels. Read the full article

so far Hyperprolactinemia, or elevated prolactin levels, is caused by hormonal disorders such as prolactinoma, hypothyroidism, and PCOS.

There is nothing wrong with linking hyperprolactinemia with other hormonal disorders. But the root cause of hyperprolactinemia and other hormonal disorders is autoimmune diseases and a weakened immune system. Autoimmune diseases and a weakened immune system are a direct result of a modern and stressful food lifestyle.

In short, the root cause of hyperprolactinemia is the result of wrong food choices and a stressful lifestyle.
