What can I do? Anyone else have this happen to them?

I haven't breastfed my son since he was 2 weeks old, He'll be a year old next month. I was taking a shower yesterday and I started leaking out of both breast. Im on implanon which is simliar to norplant. So I can't be pregnant, but I thought thats the only time you produced the hormon for the breastmilk?

  • Both of my kids decided they were done breastfeeding when they were 5 months old. When my son was 2 and I wasn't pregnant or even close to it, I still found that I would leak in the shower occasionally. Usually around when I would be getting my period.

  • My son is 5 and every once in a while I still leak. I guess it is just hormones.

  • It's just hormones.
    I stopped breastfeeding my son, and I was still leaking months later.
