Have discharge from breast when squeezed. Had a miscarriage earlier. What to do now?

i have a clear-ish white, sticky to the touch discharge coming from small parts of my nipple. I don't have any lumps or changes in my breasts just the discharge. It only comes out if i squeeze my breasts. There's typically more in my left breast then my right. I do believe i've had a miscarriage about a month or two ago.

Based from the information it seems like the discharge is due to prolactin hormone which helps for lactation after delivery but since you had miscarriage the milk is not used by the baby's sucking hence you are seeing the discharge by pressing breasts.

I would like you to go and see your gynecologist in a bring it to his/her notice and they will prescribe medication to stop the prolactin hormone release , which in turn will solve the issues of discharge.

hope it helps.
