Breastmilk a year after birth?

Hello, i was wondering if it is normal to have breastmilk a year after my son was born. I never breastfeed nor am I pregnant. However I do have a cyst on my ovary but thats recent not sure if that can be a cause. It would be a great help if you can answer this. I can t go to the OBGYN due to insurance issues. Thank you.


Breast discharge is not normal in a woman who is not nursing, pregnant or recently weaned. (Sometimes a woman may continue to produce small amounts of milk for many months after weaning, especially if she nursed for a long time. But if you didn't, and the discharge is new, it's not normal.) It's unlikely to be any sort of medical emergency, but as soon as you get your insurance issues cleared up, you'd want to make an appointment for a check-up, and get it checked out. (There are lots of possible causes, from minor hormonal issues to pituitary tumors to breast cancer.)


I don't think it's very normal. If you're not nursing then I don't see why you should still be producing milk. Maybe you can just call your obgyn and ask this question over the phone?
