  • After I had my hysterectomy I was put on hormone replacements. Because my hormones had been so low for so long, once I got to the correct level, I began producing breast milk. My doctor told me to be sure to take showers with my breasts away from the shower, not to go bra-less and it stopped within a week. Strange.

  • yes before having any kids I had it for over a year, it was a hormone imbalance.

  • Occasionally, depending on a particular stimulation, my right breast will do this! Never more than a drip or two, but still...kinda weird, lol!

  • I think my younger sister was 4 or 5 years old when I asked my mom if she still made milk(I was probaby 7 or 8 at the time) and she squeezed one and a good squirt of milk came out. Pretty weird for me at the time. She oly breastfed my sister for about 3 weeks.
