Why do I have very painful breasts after miscarriage

If you have very painful breasts after a miscarriage it sounds like your milk may have come in. Your body may have thought that you gave birth to a baby and it was time for your breasts to make milk. To help ease the pain you can wear a tight fitted bra, put cold compresses on your breasts, sit in a hot bath or shower. Some women also find taking over the counter medications like Sudafed can help dry the milk up and decreases the pain quicker. Don't pump or stimulate your breasts because that can make the problem worse.
