Usually breast discharge is only seen in very hypothyroid patients where the pituitary (part of the brain that makes hormones) releases extra Prolactin (hormone that induces breast milk) in addition to the TSH (hormone that communicates with the thyroid).
If your hashi/hypo is controlled (ie normal TSH) then it is not likely the thyroid problem.
