Brief Answer: HIGH PROLACTIN DURING PREGNANCY IS THE CAUSE. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Milky watery discharge (mild) from breast is quite common during pregnancy period and it is quite physiological. It occurs due to high prolactin level. You must clean your breast including nipple regularly to avoid cracking and bacterial infection. Wear tight breast support. Hope, I have answered your query.
