I think I may be lactating. It is coming out of my left br___t only. If I squeeze around the nipple I can get more out. Anyone else hae this problem?

Erin how far along are you?!! Girl, the only time people do that is if they have a Pituitary problem or else they're preggers. Congrats, Mama!***

I have had a pituitary tumor (microscopic) since the age of 16. My prolactin level has always been elevated, but not enough to cause an absence of menstruation. It is often a benign condition and the only time one needs to be concerned is if the level is so high that you have trouble concieving, due to not having a period. If you are not pregnant, you might want to call your doctor and have your level checked. There are medications which can lower your prolactin level, if it becomes an issue. The medical term, if you want to do a google, is galactorea. I am now 31 and still can express some milk. Good luck. I am happy to answer more questions about this if you need me to.

This is the first time this has ever happened. I am expecting my period anytime.
