breast leaking

My question isnt really about breast cancer but I thought this would be the best place for the answer.  My tubes have been tied since Septmber of this year and I quit breast feeding in June of this year, my breast have started leaking what could this mean and should i contact my doctor?

Hi.  I don't think the leaking breasts are anything to worry about. Women who previously breastfed can relactate even a year after stopping breastfeeding.  Any kind of nipple stimuli can induce prolactin production.  This is a hormone which induces the secretion of milk in women. It's possible that you accidentally received stimuli which caused your breasts to produce milk again.
