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

Keep feeding: A blocked duct usually happens because of inadequate transfer of milk from the breast to the baby. That means the baby needs to feed well and frequently on that side.
