I’ve lost all our male readers already.
It’s just me and you, ladies….so let’s talk lactation.
First things first. Did you know that women who have NOT given birth can still breastfeed their babies?
Well once you understand the physiology of breastfeeding and that it’s triggered by prolactin levels (controlled by the pituitary gland in the brain) it makes sense that a non-pregnant woman can lactate granted she elevates her prolactin.
You may be thinking…but don’t high prolactin levels decrease fertility?
