What is Agalactia?

Description of the disease

Agalactia is a condition in which a woman is unable to produce enough milk to feed her baby. This can be caused by various physiological or psychological reasons.


Agalactia can be classified as primary (when there is no milk production immediately after childbirth) or secondary (when milk production occurs but then decreases or disappears).


  • Absence of milk let-down
  • Inability of the baby to gain weight
  • Decreased milk supply


Causes of agalactia can include hormonal imbalances, stress, improper breastfeeding technique, medication, and other factors.


Diagnosis of agalactia involves analyzing the level of prolactin, ultrasound examination of the mammary glands, and studying the body's reaction to food absorption.


Treatment may include dietary changes, hormone therapy, psychological support, and assistance from a lactation consultant.


Prevention of agalactia involves proper preparation for breastfeeding, minimizing stress, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


If agalactia is suspected, it is advisable to consult a gynecologist or lactation consultant.
