Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

Both abnormal and normal nipple discharge can be clear, yellow, white, or green in color. Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples and is often released when the nipples are compressed or squeezed. Some women who are concerned about breast secretions may actually cause it to worsen. So don't squeeze them and see if it stops. It's likely hormonal as your period just ended. Bloody discharge is never normal. Check with your doctor if it keeps happening (without you squeezing them) or you are still concerned.
