    Default Still able to express tiny amount 2.5 years on?

    Hi guys,

    Odd situation! I can still get a few drops of what appears to be milk from my left boob?

    I spoke to my gynaecologist about it and he sent me to get an MRI to clear the possibility of a prolactinoma (brain tumour which can cause breastmilk production) which was clear thankfully.
    I have no contraception and haven't breastfeeding for 2.5 years!

    It's not an issue but just odd. Has anyone else experienced this?

    TIA

    I haven't experienced it but heard some women's milk never dries up completely!

    I've never dried up completely. It's been 18 months since I last Breastfed and I still have a bit of milk.

    It's a bit disappointing actually, hah! I struggled so much to increase my supply with herbal supplements, expressing, medication, cookies, awful tasting porridge with yeast... And now, after all this time, I can still get a bit out!!

    I'm glad it's pretty normal though thank you! x
