  • found this on google.....
    Many womenWomen's way have some type of nipple dischargeAbnormal discharge from the nipple when their breasts are squeezed, and its normalNormal saline flush. Squeezing the nipple sends message to the brain and the pituitary gland responds by increasing prolactin levels, which in turn produces discharge from the nipple. The discharge can come in a variety of colors - gray, green and brown as well as white. Some women are more prone to more discharge including women on; birth control pills, certain blood pressure medications or on major tranquilizers. These medications increase prolactin levels in the body. There is also certain life periods when a person is more likely to get discharge than others: there may be more discharge at puberty and at menopause than the years in-between.

    The time to worry about nipple discharge is when it�s spontaneous (comes out by itself without squeezing), keeps on

  • possible cysts. Worry if it comes out on its own without squeezing. Are you on HBP meds? This could be a side effect as well as the BC pills.See your gyno

  • The time to worry about nipple discharge is when it�s spontaneous (comes out by itself without squeezing), keeps on happening,is only on one side, and/or if it is clear and sticky, like an egg white, or bloody. If these symptoms are present a doctor should check you.
