How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

How soon into pregnancy should you expect clear nipple discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week and a half ago (yes we used a condom)?

Anytime: Nipple discharge depends only on the amount of prolactin you create. If you are pregnant you already produce a lot, and if you are having a lot of nipple stimulation during sex, your prolactin will shoot up and you will start lactating or having discharge sooner. If the discharge is from both sides, don't worry about it. Be careful later on, as too much stimulation can cause early contractions. ...Read more

Is nipple discharge from one breast normal? I've taken pregnancy test and they have came back negative

Nipple discharge: Nipple discharge is sometimes a result of increased prolactin. A blood test will reveal elevated prolactin and should be performed to rule out pituitary adenoma. Not rarely, however patients that continue to check the breast for discharge will inadvertently stimulate the release of prolactin. Simply not touching the breasts for 3 months will usually stop the discharge. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) was removed a month ago. I've been bleeding for 3 days now but have nipple discharge. Negative pregnancy test though. What's going on?

Nipple discharge.: Depends on the color of the discharge. If milky it could be your prolactin level is elevated. If green or black its more likely a benign breast issue not related to the mirena (levonorgestrel). If bloody its more concerning. I would suggest you see your GYN for a serum pregnancy test, thyroid test and prolactin level and have them confirm the type of nipple discharge ...Read more

Boobs sensitive to touch, clear discharge from nipple, milky vaginal discharge, hurts when I'm on my stomach and left side. Possible pregnancy?

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

If you WERE pregnant, and no longer are, you might need a D&C if you have parts that got stuck. See a doc, they need to do a blood test. If you are not pregnant, whew!
