Could be normal but.


We order 2 blood tests for women who are leaking white fluid from their nipples. We check for thyroid disorder and elevations in prolactin hormone. If those are normal, there is no medical problem causing the discharge. In that case decreasing stimulation to the nipples during sex play and when showering may reduce the discharge.

Having period?


If you're still having your period, then there's a good chance you're ovulating, which means you can still get pregnant. Breast milk isn't a good indicator of pregnancy, but I'd still get a pregnancy test anyways and followup with your doctor.
