  • Actually, you can have this from time to time throughout your life. This happened to me around 42. I actually freaked out because I thought I could be pregnant! Ugh.... The Dr. said there was nothing wrong, it was just a hormonal issue.

  • It is if your man is a breast man. Regular intense stimulation can cause lactation. Several meds can cause it too - what are you taking? Any new meds?

  • Then it's time to make an appointment with your gyn. At the very least, this will put your mind at rest.

  • Some women continue to lactate, even decades after they stop breastfeeding. My mother, who had a radical hysterectomy 4 years ago and hasn't breastfed in 26 years, can still express milk.
