What does it mean if your able to squeeze a drop of milk from your breasts?

So i might be in denial but for the last month or so my boobs started getting sore and tonight one of them felt kind of "heavy" so i squeezed it like i'm trying to get milk out to see whats up. sure enough, a drop comes out. then i try a minute later, same thing happens.

thing is, i havent been gaining or losing any weight and i will definetly buy a test but its been 4 years since my last child and i still have my mirana in (birth control).

has anyone had this happen and it WASNT a pregnancy?

  • I'm not pregnant and I an do that. Breasts make some fluid without being pregnant.

    Also, discharge from nipples can indicate breast cancer or infection.

  • I think you need to get a test.. The only time I have milk in my breast is when I'm pregnant or breastfeeding

  • I can still squeeze "milk" out of my breasts, but it's more like colostrum. Last time I breastfeed was 2 years ago! I have an IUD as well, but the non hormonal one 'ParaGurd'. My breasts never used to hurt before when I was about to start my period, but now since I have the IUD they do all the time (and cramps!) If it was only 'milk' coming out that was alarming you then no I would say you were fine, but if you have other symptoms then I would say get a test (better get a test anyway) usually your breasts don't fill up until the end or after when you're pregnant.
