Doctor insights on:
Is It Normal To Still Have Breast Milk After Three Years
Yes: Breastfeeding at least every two to three hours helps to maintain milk production. For most women, eight breastfeeding or pumping sessions every 24 hours keeps their milk production high. Therefore, if you have continued to breastfeed or are still pumping then it is normal to still have breast milk after three years. As soon as you stop breast feeding, your breasts will stop producing milk.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: It is not unusual to have an occasional small amount years after pregnancy. Large and constant amounts would merit investigation.

Galactorrhea: Breast milk is produced on demand. If you want to keep producing milk, you can do it indefinitely by expressing the milk yourself. However, you might be using birth control pills, which can be associated with breast milk production. So to answer your question, this could be normal.
Lactation: Nope, it's not normal to be lactating after 15 yrs of oregnancy. Seek help from a md.
Need prolactin level: B"sd that's an interesting circumstance. Are you having regular menses - if you are much less likely to be a significant issue such as pituitary tumor (prolactinoma). Certain activities besides nursing can sustain milk production. Even if prolactin normal, dopamine agonist therapy with bromcriptine, Dostinex (cabergoline) may be effective. Glad to discuss in more detail

Its been 2 years since I had a miscarriage but I still have breast milk how do I get rid of it? An why did it last so long?
Need a workup: Your symptom is unusual, do not think it is related to your miscarriage 2 years ago, so you need an evaluation as to why you have significant breast secretions.
What tests do doctors perform to diagnose thyroid? (i have severe headaches and I still have breast milk since 6 years after my first baby.) please help.
Thyroid Function: Your doctor will need to order a thyroid function test and along with the results of a physical and other exams determine if your symptoms stem from thyroid issues or are of some other cause. Good luck!
I never breast fed and I currently have breast milk is that normal its been 5 years scince I had a kid.
Probably not: You should see your doctor. Galactorrhea can be a result of exercise (such as jogging) or activities that cause stimulation of the nipples or it may be due to medications that cause an elevated prolactin level, however there are tumors that can cause galactorrhea. The cause may be harmless, but it would be appropriate to investigate.
Breast milk started drying up 3 years after weaning? Pituitary gland is normal. Will this cause hormonal changes and visual migraines?
No: I'm not entirely sure what you're asking here, as breast milk will usually go away after you're done breastfeeding. For it to go on 3 years after weaning is a bit unusual, but i'd be glad it did. If the pituitary is normal, then no, unless you're prone to migraines anyways you should be fine.
Galactorrhea: It is possible that this is completely normal, depending on how long its been since your pregnancy. However, it might not be normal if it doesn't go away. Milk production is a product of tactile breast stimulation. If you or a partner continues to express milk from your breast, you will continue to produce it.
See G.Y.N.doctor: It is not normal to produce breast milk in your case. Normally breast milk is expected soon after delivery of the baby or after miscarriage. But it should not continue after miscarriage. Discuss with your G.Y.N. doctor or consult endocrinologist to get your harm one checked.

Is it normal for breast milk to leak out your breasts after 1 year of having a Baby? Or can you be pregnant again?
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
Is it normal for drops of breast milk to come out of breast after a year of not breast feeding? Does it mean pregnant? Please help!
Yes and no for 2 Qs: While it isn't it improbable to get drops of milk from the breast, long after you breast fed the infant, I wouldn't rely on this "method" to diagnose pregnancy, for which easy to use home pregnancy kits should be used. If you have doubts after that, you can be checked by your physician for a better assessment. Good luck!
