Hi ladies! I know I promised to be consistent this year but I’ve been doing my own research on NBE as well, so busy busy lately hehe! I hope you all are doing well 🙂
The next post is going to be for nooglerz-crazy-people. I think is essential to make clear overpumping is not a good idea and why you should take into account the amount of time you spend pumping day by day. Lately I’ve got three private messages related to overpumping so I think it is a good idea to talk about it on the blog!
So, what is exactly overpumping? Basically puttin’ too much pressure on the cups that your breast and skin get red or even purple. Very purple sometimes. Yuck, this is not a joke! You feel like the pressure is making your breast area super stretchy , and finally you get like little spots or red dots around all the bust .
Why it happens? It can be for many reasons at the same time in my opinion .
From my own experience , it can happen due to a poor circulation for example : this means your blood flow is bad prior noogling or you have not put enough heat around your chest (remember 5-10 minutes is good!!) ; it can be too , as said before, cause you are putting too much pressure : it is true you need certain pressure for vacuum pumping but it has to be ‘valid’ , ‘tolerable’ and ‘different’ each time you pump : valid in a way you can see all your breast pumped, tolerable because it is not pain at all and different cause in every session you do you have to do much pressure, less pressure, much pressure, less pressure and so on ; another cause could be because you don’t respect the time, 7:2 method in general : it ‘s essential to keep in mind pump and release it’s necessary at least twice in a session, your breasts and your skin need to breathe for seconds or even minutes sometimes. Also, massage plays a good role on this one, so it’s mandatory (sorry!!). On the other hand make sure how much time you can be pumping in total – in my case, for example, it is 3 hours maximum in a day – if I do more than 3 hours I feel soreness that can last up to 4 days and this can be dangerous if I keep pumping the next coming days! and last but not least, I am not sure yet if this is a big cause or secondary cause but NOT TAKING BREAKS can be counterproductive as well . I haven’t had any issue yet with this, but I’ve read on the forum there are some gals that had these negative part when pumping cause they were pumping non stop for months. So, my advice is, t-a-k-e b r e a k s , once a week, one week per month, 2 weeks every three months, 2 months every five months…again, everyone is different so watch out, listen to your body on this!
Usually when I overpump it is because I do not measure well the pressure or I feel so sleepy that in the end I don’t do pump and release (I’m human, I am lazy) and then I face aaaalll the consequences, not just the red dots, purple skin and soreness – that’s just the physical part.
Now, there are other things too . You may ask, like what? These ones :
1- You need to take a break til the purple skin and red dots are gone. Yup.
2- Moisturizing a lot like 3 or 4 times everyday for the rest of the month ( I asked to my friend who is a naturopath and she suggested me to do this way for avoiding stretchmarks or even scars! I use vitamin E by the way)
3- When you get back to boob work, you have to do 30 minutes no more for a week or so – you need to be sure if you are 100% cured!
4- You need to massage more times per day until you are completely healed – yes, 3 times a day but more minutes. Again I’m sorry but this works!
5- With all this chaos, you have to readjust your nooglin’ program and this sometimes can be frustrating .
In conclusion, try to not overpump too much times in a year or your program must be readjusted so many times that in the end , you may not see results faster and in a better way. I still learning about how the pressure works on breast area and what things are okay and what are like ‘never ever in my life before’ and this context is one of them , I’d say the worst one. So please, if you are new in this world of noogling make a good program , be consistent but do not do crazy things. Remember everyone’s body reacts different and my case can be similar to yours or maybe not, so do a good research, try, get experience, learn from the mistakes you do and spread the word 😉
Til the next time!!!
” Happy noogling”
