lactating virgin
vinnyvlittle5 posted:
Please help? My daughter is 18, a virgin, and mentrating. She is lactating at the same time and she is not only scared but confused. She is on the pill to curb her heavy flow.
Our first reaction as most would be was that she had sex or was pregnant, but we know our daughter to well and have discussed these things at length. We know 100% this is not the case....please help

She could have a hormone imbalance. Being seen by a doctor might be a good idea.
Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear vinnyvlittle: Sometimes women will notice discharge from one or both nipples. Generally we tell women that bilateral, white or clear discharge , which is only present with nipple stimulation, is likely to be "normal." Being on birth control pills can sometimes enhance "normal" breast discharge. Certain psychiatric medications—especially the antipsychotics —can initiate nipple discharge. Bilateral, spontaneous secretions can be prompted by a pituitary problem, or low thyroid. Both low thyroid and elevated prolactin (from the pituitary gland) can be checked for using simple blood tests. These are the hormone tests tlkittycat was mentioning.
