Try giving your doctor a call. I’m not giving medical advice and am not a medical practitioner. However, there are many reasons that a woman may be perfectly healthy and “normal” and lactate a little. Is it coming from both nipples or just one? If it’s just one, definitely call your doctor. Is it just a little or a lot? If it’s a small amount when your breasts/nipples are stimulated, it’s not as urgent. I’ve read that some women lactate a very small amount every month, depending on where they’re at on their cycle (typically 5-7 days after ovulation, if i recall correctly). I was on a medication several years ago that caused me to lactate. At the time, I freaked out and didn’t talk to my doctor. A good friend of mine is a midwife and was telling me about a medication women get through the black market (essentially) to help them lactate if they are having problems or if they adopted – and it was the one i was on! I guess a lot of guys on it freak out. It wasn’t a ton, but enough to freak me out.

@MsLobizon: I agree.

OP-I’ve never had that happen either (that I’m aware of) but a call to the Dr. should clear things up. How sweet of your Fiance, though, to be so calm and kind about it. Some guys would be a tad freaked out! LOL.

My ex was a boob guy. He spent a lot of time playing with and sucking mine (TMI, sorry). And I started lactating because of that. If you’re getting a lot of stimulation, the body’s natural response is to start producing milk. I don’t think it’s anything worry about.
