Hi goinsgirl - You may be experiencing Galactorrhea, a discharge of milk-like substance from the breast that is not associated with breast-feeding after pregnancy. This condition mainly occurs in women. It does occur in men, but much less commonly. The milky white discharge can come from one or both breasts, and the breast may leak fluid with or without stimulation.

You can learn more from our reference page: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/galactorrhea#definition

Will you let us know if this sounds like what you're dealing with? Take care, Pat
