Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us for a reason for having milk like breast discharge. Since this is happening when you squeeze your breast, I urge you not to do this because stimulation actually makes the discharge continue.

How old are you? Has this ever happened before? Are you currently pregnant? Have you recently had a baby? Do you suffer with or been diagnosed with any medical conditions?

Nipple discharge in a woman who's not pregnant or breast-feeding isn't necessarily abnormal, but it should be evaluated by a doctor.

One or both breasts may produce a nipple discharge, either spontaneously or when you squeeze your nipples or breasts.

Nipple discharge is a normal part of breast function during pregnancy or breast-feeding. It also may be associated with menstrual hormone changes. The milky discharge after breast-feeding can normally continue for up to two years after stopping nursing.

Anonymous, if you're still having menstrual periods and your nipple discharge doesn't resolve on its own after your next menstrual cycle, make an appointment with your doctor to have it evaluated.

However, if you've completed menopause and you're experiencing a spontaneous nipple discharge that involves one breast and a single duct, see your doctor right away for further evaluation.

Keep us updated,
