hands off!

I didn’t write about this earlier. I kind of forgot to mention it, but since we’ve been in the passionate throes of baby-making sex (you know what I mean), it’s come up. I am under doctors orders, rather dh is under doctor’s orders. There is to be no nipple stimulation. No caressing, licking, sucking, playing or other fondling of the breasts. In fact, I currently wear a sports bra to bed at night, lest the nipples get any naughty ideas at 2 AM.

It seems that prolactin is a funny little hormone that increases during certain activities. Nipple or breast stimulation is one of them. There are others, but I didn’t get specific instructions about those.

I never thought I’d miss my breasts being involved in sex. But I do. Don’t tell my husband.

  1. Ugh – sleeping in the sports bra must be SOOOO uncomfortable. Sorry that your boobies aren’t gettin’ any love :o(

  2. Hang in there…..it’ll happen in time. Have you visited the About.com forums? Great women there with a tonne of info.


  3. Boobie-love is awfully nice, yes. Hope it won’t be long you have to deprive them. What does the prolactin do? Are you cycling this month? Sorry, I’ve lost track of everyone’s cycles.

  4. D-

    The prolactin makes my boobies make small amounts of breast milk. My level is minimally elevated – dr thinks it could be causing problems with implantation. So I’m taking bromocriptine (Parlodel) to lower the level. I’m on cd 20, 3dpo.
