Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad to reached out to us for advice.

How long has this been going on?

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

Have you ever been pregnant? Have you ever breast fed your baby?

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.

Possible causes of breast discharge can range from a hormonal imbalance to a breast infection.

Anonymous, please call to schedule an appointment with your gynecologist, who can examine you, make a diagnosis and prescribe any treatment.
