She found that measures of glucose intolerance predicted delayed lactogenesis in a group of primiparous Sacramento-area mothers.
It is therefore of interest to answer the following questions: Since GCs are one of the hormones involved in the process of lactogenesis resulting eventually in terminal differentiation of the cell (lactational change), is the opposite true?

Convey [21] referred that prepartum appearance of lactose in the mammary gland may be considered as "lactogenesis" which mean the onset of milk production.

(22) The immature sucking of preterm babies and the delayed lactogenesis are cyclic, as immature sucking can further reduce milk production, which can limit the milk available to the infant, and could interfere with successful breastfeeding.
Dairy cattle during the transition from pregnancy into lactation experience a multitiered set of adaptations aimed at allowing the mammary gland to begin and maintain lactogenesis. From a physiological perspective, the inherently low capacity of animals to consume enough dietary energy and the detrimental inflammatory-like conditions due to release of proinflammatory cytokines lead to the marked release of LCFA into the bloodstream from the adipose tissue.
Results of this study, and others, (4,5) indicate that the available progestin-only contraceptives do not significantly impact lactogenesis or the development of exclusively breastfed infants.
