Can be normal but...: There are many conditions that can lead to galactorrhea (the term for milk discharge in the absence of pregnancy or breast feeding) Some causes can be as benign as stimulation during sexual activity and others can be serious. You should see your doctor to discuss a workup. see: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/galactorrhea/basics/causes/con-20025628 ...Read more

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. ...Read more
