Hi,
As you have bloody discharge from nipple you have to go for complete check up of your both breasts by your gynecologist and Mammography should be done as early as possible.

Hey thank you for being here to answer my questions. I have been having some symptoms lately, I had a child 7 months ago, but recently this week I have had some really weird symptoms. I ve had, a one day period, mucousy discharge for a few days, brown discharge, then I had breast milk in my nipples. I have the IUD. Do you think I am pregnant? I took a test it was negative, and lately I have been getting really bad dizzy spells and nausea. I have really bad teeth pain and tiredness. However I have been chewing my nails bloody, and cant sleep. So I am wondering what you think. Thank you :)~ A very concerned young mother

Long story short I met a guy with the same fetish as me and it has been absolutely amazing and I am experiencing things I never had. Tonight after sex I was playing with my nipples, which were of course dry like any other area of skin. After playing with them a little my right breast was suddenly wet. What the heck happened? Was it something from within the nipple/breast? If I had to guess I would have assumed it was some type of lubrication kinda your vagina when you get turned on...But I have never heard of breasts leaking/releasing any liquid when you are turned on..I am not pregnant but I was 13 weeks pregnant and miscarried 9 days ago... I know it isn t milk but could it be something else related to pregnancy or miscarrying? Or is it related to being turned on and the miscarriage happening recently is unrelated? Or is something potentially wrong? Thank you in advance my loves!

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?
