LACTATING A Little Freaked Out Here

I am also playing the waiting game...all my tests have been negative but I still feel a little strange (my af last month was late and light, that has NEVER happened before). Last night my br___ts felt "heavy", and, curious, I squeezed one and MILK came out! It's been 7 months since I stopped nursing, and I have always had the clear stuff (not that I make a habit of checking, lol!) but this is the first time I have had white stuff come out. Can this happen if you are NOT pregnant, because I am getting a little tired of my body sending me mixed signals! Anybody who has had this happen, PLEASE give me your input! Thanks.

Hi twingle. You may not like this, but my doctor told me that lactation without b___stfeeding can be caused by an increase in the hormone Prolactin, which is produced by your pituitary gland. He said that if I was to begin lactating without b___stfeeding, he would check my pituitary gland for a tumor. Has your doctor seen you? Did you stop lactating? It may be nothing, and I don't know if early pregnancy can cause lactation or not... just thought I'd share this with you. Good luck to you!

I was told it is totaly normal to lactade (a little) especially if you have had a previous pregnancy and/or u have been on the pill. I am not pregnant (I had my daughter 7 yrs ago) and I lactade too. I have a female friend that does too and she has her tubes tied.

I am pretty sure it s normal. I havent had any children, but I have had small amounts of fluid from b___sts, I saw the DR. about it because I got nervouse, my mother has b___st cancer, after some test he said it was just hormonal, some woman have it some dont.

That's good to know! Maybe my doctor is just overly cautious. Thank God for other women! You guys know so much! :-) This is such a helpful place!
