If you are having milky discharge from your nipples then I would suspect an elevated prolactin level. I have had this from some of the medication that I'm taking (suspected from the Zyprexa I was on), had my levels checked and they were around 33 ng/ml, normal levels should be less than 24 ng/ml. Much higher levels, into the high 100's might be suspect to a benign pituatary gland tumour. The treatment is usually something like Bromocryptine. I asked my OB/GYN if I could use it to lower my slightly elevated level and he said no, too many side-effects. Have you had your prolactin level checked?
