Hormone levels and breast stimulation
Dear GynaeDoc,

I would like to know if excessive and regular stimulation of the breasts like sucking during foreplay and sex can affect hormone levels such as estrogen, progesterone and prolactin?

Thanks

Yes, it can increase prolactin and cause secretion of milk.
