    23yr old with breast issues, never been pregnant

    I'm 23 yrs old.
    I have been having breast pain since about May. They ache all day, and are tender to touch on the outer edges. Sometimes if I squeeze them, little beads of white/clear/greenish-brown will secrete. The doctor did some blood work and my prolactin levels were high. I was ordered an MRI of the pituitary gland, which came back negative. Then I had to get a Mammogram and Sonogram done, which came out fine also. I don't drink pop at all, and my only caffeine intake is a cup of coffee in the mornings. I have been on the same birth control for years.

    anyone have some insight? please and thank you.

    Have you ever had children? I would request that your Dr do an ultrasound of your breast(s). Some things do not show up on mammograms. Also, request that your Dr do a 'smear' of the discharge/secretion to look for any abnormal cells.

    Do you have a new boyfriend? If so, is he a breast man? Intense breast stimulation can cause lactation ...

    Darlyn, she said that she had never been pregnant and also that she had had a sonogram done to answer 2 of your questions.

    Thanx! Didn't read title clearly and missed Sonogram in text. If the color is other than somewhat clear, milky my Dr's found abnormal cells. Thanx for clarifying.

    I did have an ultrasound/sonogram. Dr said my mammogram was "very busy" because I am so young, but nothing abnormal.
    Both gyno & family doctor did not sample the discharge.
    No, not a new boyfriend.
    I'm wondering maybe if it's something hormonal because of the mentioned issue, but weight gain (haven't changed excercise or dieting), daily headaches, lack of libido. Been on the same birth control for years.
    But, WHY would it just start all of a sudden?
    This is a scary thing for a 23yr old
