Having breast pain while breastfeeding? You are not alone
Breast pain is a leading cause for breastfeeding cessation. Out of each 10 breastfeeding women, 7 will have breast pain, 3 will have mastitis. It is not just acute mastitis. Breast pain during breastfeeding can come in different forms, from deep breast pain with normal breast appearance, to breast redness, to nipple pain. Symptom-based differentiation can lead to misdiagnosis. MyMilk bring you evidence-based solution to differentiate the origin of your OWN pain, based on YOUR breast milk sample. You should not just accept your breast pain. Untreated breast pain, or incorrect management of breast pain during breastfeeding can lead to recurrent mastitis or abscess complications, discomfort to you and your baby, and reduced milk volume and early weaning.

Mothers start to take control of their pain.
We heard it all. Women that were disregarded by their healthcare providers due to normal breast appearance but where eventually successfully treated only after receiving their MyMilk test report, and continued breastfeeding pain free; women that were thought to have thrush (candida) and were treated with antifungal drug and after MyMilk test changed the diagnosis and treatment, and got symptoms relief; women that reported repeated breast pain and got numerous antibiotic treatments, that did not show bacteria at all, so only after taking different measures her pain resolved. And many other mothers in pain, each straggle with her own case. All got better understanding of their pain origin. All started to manage their pain. Many needed additional or different treatment than thought before the test.
