Weird breast question adult content

I noticed yesterday a lot of tenderness in my breasts and when I took a shower, my milk ducts were white. This has happened once before and it went away before I could figure out what it was. I'm going to do a little of my own research because I assume it's hormonal changes or something, but I just wanted to find out if anybody else has had this happen, too. (I don't know if it matters, but I breastfed my son.)

  • Are you still breastfeeding? If not, how long ago did you stop? If it goes away then I wouldn't worry about it, but if it persists for more than a couple days, I would go see my doctor.

  • Ductal yeast infection - check out the La Leche League website
