Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. Fluid discharge from the breast not associated with normal lactation is called Galactorrhea. You may want to call your doctor and explain any symptoms to see if they think it warrants a visit to check things out. It is likely they may want to check to make sure there isn't any infection, and rule out other possible conditions.
For more information, check out this: Galactorrhea Information
Good luck and let us know what you find out. Your experience may be able to help someone else. Also, let us know how you're doing.
