Breast Implants and Pain White Breastfeeding Second Time Around?

I recently had my baby And I began breastfeeding everything was good for a little bit over 3 weeks when I suddenly notice a really bad pain when breastfeeding her. Then I noticed I had a really hard spot on my breast. And it's really painful even while I'm not breastfeeding. I've had my implants for almost 5 years and this is my second child. The first one was I also breastfead and never came across this horrific pain! Please advise me on what to do....

Breast feediong and pain

The pain may be from the implants, it could be a mastitis from breast feeding. Difficult to say without an exam, you should see your doctor.

Pain while Breast Feeding?

Thank you for the question.

It would be in your best interest to be examined by a physician;  only after obtaining a history and performing a physical examination can an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan be determined.  Online  consultants can only speculate  as to what is going on...

Best wishes.
