How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge.  I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

Anytime: Nipple discharge depends only on the amount of prolactin you create. If you are pregnant you already produce a lot, and if you are having a lot of nipple stimulation during sex, your prolactin will shoot up and you will start lactating or having discharge sooner. If the discharge is from both sides, don't worry about it. Be careful later on, as too much stimulation can cause early contractions. ...Read more

Maybe: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Is nipple discharge from one breast normal? I've taken pregnancy test and they have came back negative

Nipple discharge: Nipple discharge is sometimes a result of increased prolactin. A blood test will reveal elevated prolactin and should be performed to rule out pituitary adenoma. Not rarely, however patients that continue to check the breast for discharge will inadvertently stimulate the release of prolactin. Simply not touching the breasts for 3 months will usually stop the discharge. ...Read more

Green and white nipple discharge left side, milky discharge right side. Will soak bra pad.Horrible headaches. No sex drive. Not pregnant. Any advice?

Pituitary issue: The combination of headaches, nipple discharge and lack of sex drive may indicate that you have a pituitary gland issue that is producing too much prolactin, a hormone that normally stimulates milk production but in high quantities can interfere with other hormone levels. Pituitary gland enlargement can also cause headaches. The greenish discharge may indicate infection. Talk to your doctor! ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) was removed a month ago. I've been bleeding for 3 days now but have nipple discharge. Negative pregnancy test though. What's going on?

Nipple discharge.: Depends on the color of the discharge. If milky it could be your prolactin level is elevated. If green or black its more likely a benign breast issue not related to the mirena (levonorgestrel). If bloody its more concerning. I would suggest you see your GYN for a serum pregnancy test, thyroid test and prolactin level and have them confirm the type of nipple discharge ...Read more

Having period for 4 months 4-5 days, negative test on day of period. Wasnt having food cravings, feeling nauseous or nipple discharge, very worried. Started having stomach growling this week, pregnant?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

No association: There is no association between nipple discharge and an abnormal placenta that I can think of. My advice is the same as the similar question you asked. Schedule follow up with your Obgyn. Clarify what is meant by an abnormal placenta. Make sure it is explained to you clearly. Also make sure what steps need to be done throughout your pregnancy ...Read more

Boobs sensitive to touch ,  clear discharge from nipple ,  milky vaginal discharge , hurts when I'm on my stomach and left side. Possible pregnancy?

Possibly: If you're sexually active, pregnancy is always possible. A home pregnancy test is a good idea, especially if you've missed a period. If it's negative, i recommend taking another one. If both are negative, and symptoms don't improve in 4-5 days, blood labs to check FSH, LH, Estradiol, Testosterone (yes, women make this too), and Progesterone, and Prolactin may help find the reason. Good luck! ...Read more
