Chiari-Frommel Syndrome

Common Name(s)

Chiari-Frommel Syndrome

Chiari-Frommel Syndrome is a rare hormonal condition that affects women who have recently given birth. It is characterized by the production of breast milk, absence of ovulation, and absent menstrual period for longer than six months after childbirth. Certain hormones maintaining pregnancy-like levels instead of returning to non-pregnant levels after childbirth causes these symptoms. Some cases of the syndrome resolve on their own without additional medical treatment, but those with the condition should consult a physician to check the pituitary gland for tumors that may be interrupting normal hormone production. For a persistent case of the syndrome, hormone therapy may be prescribed. A woman's hormone levels and reproductive abilities return to normal once cured.
