    Hello my name is lisa. I am 25 years old and I have 2 kids. one is 4 and the other is going to be 2 in january. I have an issue I'm trying to figure out. I am leaking breast milk still and I don't breastfeed my daughter. She's going to be 2 in january I never breastfed her and I have no idea why I'm leaking like I have a newborn baby. My mom says to take a pregnancy test but I have been getting my period every month so I doubt I'm pregnant. I need some advice.....

    Is your partner a "breast man"? If he is, then he is probably supplying the stimulation necessary for you to continue lactating ...

    Well I'm a single mom and I have been single since I was pregnant with my daughter. I have been leaking since I had my daughter. Which is weird because I didn't breastfeed her. My mom is thinking that there is something wrong because my periods are very heavy and I get strong pain when I have it. I have to see my doctor, but I'm worried because she has the same things except the leaking and she has a tumor in her uterus. I know leaking isn't normal almost 2 years after giving birth and never breastfeeding. I mean I can produce enough milk to feed a newborn right now. Sometimes I'll leak through my bra onto my shirt and my sister tells me I leaked through when I haven't noticed. My breasts are swollen with milk. I'm at a loss. lol.

    I noticed same issue very recently. I'm due to take some tests to ascertain the cause. Please share if you have been diagnosed and cured.
