You have ? High prolactin.
Confirm in a lab.
List the drugs you've used in the last 6 months here.
A couple of our patients came in after using appeite stimulant (cypri-gold) complaining of galactorrhoea (milky discharge).

Mostly malaria drugs Malareich n Amala. I'm genotype AA so I go under with malaria sometimes. I also take paracetamol n MIM blood capsules regularly too.
I also took Ciprotab n Artesunat for Typhoid once. That's about all I ve taken.

From what u described...its obvious u have a high prolactin and probably Galactorrhoea like d last poster said. Don't know much about it but I will advise u to google it and find out more and also see a gynaecologist as soon as possible. Good luck

It is hormonal issue.

Better go see a gynaecologist. Be here asking questions from stangers. hyperprolactinaemia causes infertility so dont joke with it.

What you have is called galactorrea as other posters have said.This could be caused by an overproduction of a hormone called prolactin which is a hormone responsible for the production of milk from the b oo bs.
This condition could be caused by maybe over stimulation of nip ples ,hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid glands), a benign tumor of the pituitary called a prolactinoma and other things,i just wrote the most common causes.
Thing is that prolactin overproduction causes a supression of some hormones which are responsible for fertility eg Leutenizing hormone,progesterone etc so it causes a female to have irregular periods(oligomennorea) and no periods (amenorrhea).Mostly due to a lack of ovulation.
It is very treatable as there are medications which can be give to you like bro mo criptine , ca bergo lie, quina go lide.People dont like the bromo cos of the side effects, caber goli ne is the fastest acting though.
In some cases if it is a prolactinoma that is very big (macroprolactinoma),surgery is carried out but people with this normally have other symptoms like headaches and visual disturbances.Even in this cases,the medications have had great success in shrinking the tumors.If there are MRI facilities where you are,it's good to have one just to be sure.Bear in mind that this tumor is benign(not harmful).
You should see your gyne so they can start treatment and monitoring your levels right away.
I suffered from this but as of now,no more secretion fron the boo b s .My prolactin levels have been coming down thanks to the medication.I am currently TTc so i am hoping for good news soon..God willing.
I know it is alarming to have this condition but it is not a big issue at all.Just make sure you get treated and you are followed up.
Try not to press it cos it will send a message to the brain that will cause it to produce more,it's called positive feedback(the brain believes that stimulation is a sign for let down of milk,so the more you press,the more the milk comes)
Good Luck Dear!!
