Greetings Renu.

Do you want to take some medications to start lactation?

i want 2 lactate, in this regard medication should i start and also other options can u suggest me.

Hello Renu,

This needs prescription of estrogen and progesterone and later breast pumping. You would need supervision of a gynecologist or an endocrinologist. Please see the details in this authentic Mayoclinic resource;

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
