In brief: Several possibilitie

Possibilities include:1) persisting stimulation (tell your partner to leave them alone) 2) certain hormones: the mini-pill, progesterone-only birth control or depo-provera.
Switch birth control 3) stimulation from clothing, use a nursing pad under the bra 4) you can have an excess of certain hormones such as prolactin. That can be evaluated by your doctor with specific blood tests.

Dr. Rosenblum has given you good advice. The most important entity to rule out is a prolactin-producing pituitary adenoma. Good luck!

In brief: Depends

It could be idiopathic, meaning there is no disorder per se, it just happens and is a nuisance.
Or it could be due to a pituitary disorder. A blood test called prolactin can be helpful.
