Hi Navi,
Thanks for Healthcaremagic,

Discharge from breast that is milky is called Galactorrhea it can be there due to variety of reasons like prolactin level is high in pituitary adenoma, Hypothyroidism, drugs like antidepressants,sedatives,Opioids,or cocain, even birth control pills.

You should consult a Gynecologist and Physician to examine and investigate for cause once cause is detected it can be treated accordingly.

Galactorrhea is often associated with amenorrhoea and irregular menstrual cycles hence pregnancy may be difficult.

Please do not worry once it's diagnosis is made it can be treated easily and you will be normal and fertility will be restored.

Hope this information is useful to you and helps in making proper decision about your health.

wish you good health.
