Bigger montgometry glands, white discharge from nipples. Trying to concieve. Is this due to pregnancy?

I think i may be pregnant but im not sure if this could be normal for someone who is not pregnant. I noticed my montgomery glands are bigger than usual and one looked like a white head so i gently squeezed it and white stuff came out!! is this a sign of pregnancy? My period is not due for another week but my husband and I have actively trying to conceive. Does this sort of thing happen to women who are not pregnant?

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

It can be that you are pregnant.

Montgomery's tubercles are one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms before missed period. They appear as tiny bumps on the areola sometimes dark colored or small whiteheads.
Not only do the breasts become very sore, but the nipples also hurt a lot.
The Montgomery tubercles can start as early as within 3 – 6 weeks of pregnancy.

However sometimes Montgomery’s tubercles can appear even when you are not pregnant. They can occur due to hormonal imbalances like raised prolactin hormone as well when you are stressed or are under going physical changes.

So you should consider a pregnancy test instead of relying completely on pregnancy symptoms before missed period.

take care.
