From where? : Milky nipple discharge can occur in pregnancy, but other conditions as well. Vaginal discharge isn't a good indicator of pregnancy, we think more of things like yeast infection, BV or other infection. If you're concerned about pregnancy, then the first thing to do is an at home pregnancy test. Hope this helps!
