Hi,

Galactorrhea can be seen in:
Pregnancy
Medicines like anti-hypertensive or anti-depressive medicines
Thyroid disorders
Over stimulation of breast (during sex, self examination or rubbing by fit clothes)
Chronic kidney disorders
Hyperprolactenemia

Proper history needs to be taken and investigations would find the cause for specific management.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale, General & Family Physician
