Galactorrhea: Galactorrhea is the term for secretion of milk from the breasts that is not related to pregnancy or nursing. The leakage is usually from both breasts and from multiple ducts on the nipple (instead of just one duct). If you have not breastfed in over a year, you should see your doctor for an evaluation, including labwork.
