Breast milk while on Minera?!

I had the Menira implanted Octber 9th this year. I have since had long heavy frequent periods (every two weeks). Last night I had a milky white thin liquid come out like colostrum. I'm freaking out! Does this happen because of the hormones in the implant?

Hello,
These symptoms can be due to galactorrhea. Galactorrhea occurs because your body is making too much prolactin.It can occur in a hormonal imbalance, such as from taking birth control pills or using hormonal birth control, hypothyroidism, chronic breast stimulation, such as from frequent breast self-exams or sexual activity and rarely in hypothalamic disorders. Confirmed by examination of the breast discharge under the microscope and by serum TSH levels.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
