  • I have that problem, I have always lactated, even before i had kids, i think its just hormones to be honest with you.

  • My doctor told me that depending on how much action your breasts get... they can continue lactating for 10+ years after you stop breastfeeding. He said the best way to prevent this was to keep your shirt on during sex for a few months... good luck :)

  • my left breast has been lactacting for 10yrs now.... I recently had a mammagram to be sure everything was ok.... I was just making hormones - never dried up.... lol... Check with your MD. They'll run lab work, probably do an ultersound, mammagram, ect to rule out the scary stuff, but sometimes Mother Nature just get's Confused... Good Luck.
