 Breast problems after breastfeeding are common, ranging from uneven breasts to misshapen breasts. Breast tissue is constantly exposed to different levels of estrogen and progesterone. These are the hormones that change during menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause. Throughout your life but especially during pregnancy and when you are breastfeeding, your breast size and shape may change significantly. Breast size is determined by how much fatty tissue you have in your breasts. Lactation creates denser tissue in your breasts. And after breastfeeding, the fatty tissue and connective tissue of your breasts may shift. Your breasts may not return to their pre breastfeeding size or shape. Breasts of some women stay larger, and others shrink. But sagging or staying full can be as much a result of genetics, weight gain during pregnancy, and age as a result of breastfeeding. Breast tissue extends up toward your armpit. So as breast tissue swells with milk and then shrinks again after breastfeeding, the contours of your bust may change. Many women have uneven breasts before pregnancy as well as after breastfeeding. It is possible for one breast to return to its pre pregnancy size after breastfeeding while the other stays larger, or droops, or flattens more. Some women end up with one breast a full cup size smaller or larger than the other after breastfeeding and simply learn to love the body that nourished their babies no matter what its shape.
