It is not completely abnormal to leak some clear
fluid from a breast. If you are leaking milk you could
have a brain tumor called a prolactin tumor, they are
not malignant. Probably not a bad Idea to see a doc
just to make sure every thing is ok. If you don't have
any redness, inflamation or lumps it is probably not
a big deal if it is clear. It it is milky, bloody or
profuse, you need to investigate further.
Please don't ask some random nurse what he/she
may think is wrong, this only makes us crazy.
Leaky breasts can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, thyroid malfunction, birth control pills and non-malignant pituitary tumours. Usually nothing to worry about but if liquid is abnormal or if you are worried, get your doctor to investigate
I am a medical assistant. If you are on birth control, you may not be pregnant but need to get checked for pregnancy anyway. If you take a home pregnancy test and it comes out negative and you think you still may be pregnant have your doctor run a blood test. They are most accurate and that will tell you for sure or not. If you are pregnant you should stop using birth control right away. Birth control is never 100 percent safe you should both use methods of birth control such as use condoms a long with using the pill. This will also help protect against stds. If your breast are leaking it could be due to many things. If you are pregnant do not squeeze the fluid out of them. If you have had a baby previously it could be left over milk. If you are pregnant it could be colostrum starting to form. If you are not pregnant it could just be do to a hormonal imbalance. Either way I suggest having a pregnancy blood test done.
How long ago did you have your last child? If it was recently, lisamarie1 is right,it could be some left over milk. I would go see my OB/GYN right away to find out for sure if you're pregnant. It could also be a sign of you're glands producing too much oxytocin, in which case you should be referred to an endocrinologist right away.
My left boob when squeezed will produce a milky liquid. From my research and various call to nurses on call have reassured me that it is normal for many reasons. Examples are hormones certain meds being around babys and if your boobs are regularly caressed. But keep in mind different people have different opinions even when they are all professionals. So with that said there are reasons that your boobs leaking could be harmful and it is best to check up with your doctor. Do not trust only feedback from your computer bc like many things on the internet including what I have said can be opinion.
If you haven't recently given birth where you would expect to be lactating, I would see about getting an appointment with an endocrinologist. My stepmother recently had major problems with her pituitary gland, and one of the questions she was asked was if she was lactating. She's 79 years old. That gland takes care of a lot of things in your body having to do with hormones. From my experience with my stepmother, it's not something I would wait on.
Yes, they can. Some hormone treatments ( like birth control pills or injections) can cause breasts to "leak" as thought they are trying to lactate (produce milk) in very small quantities. But if you have a discharge from your breasts, you check with your doctor to be sure there are not other causes.
You need to go and see a doctor about this, when this happens, it is usually that you are in the later part of pregnancy. I know that when I was younger the doctor told me that there shouldn't be any discharge from the breast, and if I ever did get it, then I should get seen. While you are there, get a real test done for pregnancy. Hope this helps, good luck.
Well some people have a chemical imbalance that imitates other body functions it could be something simple lactating happens I think I was told about 5 months into a pregnancy you could visit a doctor or even just ask someone at a hospital like a nurse they may be able to identify what is going on it could be your body changing guess it also depends on how old you are...
This is a part of pregnancy
