I am on my cycle and my partner was sucking/biting my nipple and a very little white discharge came out. Why? It looked like a small pimple were popped. On another occasion he was doing the same thing and clear discharge came out

The milk can flow spontaneously or with sucking or pinching of the nipple. There may be a tiny amount of fluid or a greater amount. This is abnormal if it occurs in a male but can be physiologic in a female. There are many medications that can cause galactorrhea.

Do it within 30 sec or the kid won't understand & never break the skin. ...Read more
