Anyone else experience this?

i havent bf for over a year and a half but i still have one boob that produces a bit of milk. its not much just a few drops but this morning after i got out of the shower i actually felt a let down sensation. i do have hypthyroidism and i have asked the doc about it and she seems to think that it has something to do with my hormone levels and my thyroid. its nothing that really bothers me just curious if anyone else experience this.

  • A thyroid condition will cause you to make breast milk. I don't have a thyroid condition but at times will still produce a small amt of bf. Usually have any stimulation to breast...including holding a newborn. Weird

  • i never breast fed and my son is 6..sometime i will notice a wet spot on my shirt and if i pinch my nipple it will leak. my doctor said she thinks its from my horomones from being on and off bc...just trying to get adjusted. i've had my blood checked and i don't have any health issues

  • On extremely warm days, I've noticed that on my nipples. I have milk flakes. I had my 3 rd child 3 yrs ago and we werent able to breast feed. I pumped for a while.

  • it may be normal but you should also talk to your doctor because sometimes a leaky breast can mean breast cancer.
