Case Details

Patient Information: The patient is an exclusively-pumping first-time mother calling for a telehealth consultation. She is ready to wean and wants your help with a weaning plan. Also, her lactational state (low-estrogen) is preventing her from re-connecting with her husband as vaginal sex has been very painful.
