Are my boobs ever going to stop leaking??

Seriously, I haven't breastfed since April of 08. This is a tad ridiculous. It's sometimes embarassing. I mean they leak to the point it shows thru!.

  • Nope, no boob stimulation for me. I'm not a fan of that and me and my guy haven't had sex in almost a month.

  • Go visit your obstetrician about it. That began happening to me about 14 years after I had my last child - just out of the blue and for about a year. When I finally went for a pap I told the doc about it and he ordered blood work on me.
    It turned out that I had high levels of a hormone called prolactin that stimulates milk production. So he had to figure out what was causing it by looking at my health history and such.
    It turned out to be one of the medications I was on was the culprit. Once the medication was changed it stopped.
    He said it wasn't a bad thing, but he understood it can be an inconvenience when you aren't even pregnant or breastfeeding.
