Hello. "Galactorrhea" is the term doctors use to describe milky nipple discharge
that occurs when you're not nursing. There are a number of causes for galactorrhea, including oral contraceptives such as Femilon
. Interestingly, some women develop galactorrhea when they stop taking estrogen-containing medications, such as Femilon, and switch to progestogen-only preparations, such as Cerazette.
Once galactorrhea develops, it's important to avoid stimulating your nipples, as this perpetuates the problem. Thus, you shouldn't squeeze your nipples, and make sure your bras fit well and don't cause nipple chafing.
If your nipple discharge recurs, see your physician for an evaluation.
I hope that answers your question!
