Can this be a sign of early pregnancy? My last period was on 18th of August

Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out and for sharing your question on EmpowHER! It is possible to be pregnant if you have breast discharge, but that is not always the case. Since your period was so recent, I would guess that you are not pregnant. However, if you are having unprotected sex, a pregnancy test is never a bad idea to confirm that you are not pregnant.

There are several different causes for breast discharge. Some include certain medications like antidepressants and drugs for high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, birth control pills, herbal supplements, underactive thyroid, frequent breast self exams, and other things.

I would suggest setting up an appointment with your doctor to determine the real cause of your breast discharge. They will be able to let you know the exact cause and help you find treatment.

Here is a very helpful article on EmpowHER all about breast discharge: http://www.empowher.com/breast-discharge/content/breast-discharge-what-does-it-mean

I hope this helped! Please keep me updated and let me know if you have further questions.
