Question: Breast discharge

 SMB83 - Wed Dec 21, 2005 7:04 pm

I am 22 years old and am having a clear/cloudy discharge from my left breast upon squeezing. I have no pain and this is the first time this has occurred. I am more than positive that I am not pregnant and am not sure if I should be concerned about this.

User avatar Hi SMB83,
Are you taking any oral contraceptives? Cloudy/clear breast discharge may be related to certain drugs or changes in hormone levels but regardless an evaluation by your physician is warranted to identify the causative factor.
