A little clear liquid appears when I sqeeze my nipples!
When I squeeze my nipples a little clear liquid appears, not much though but what does that mean!? I am so confused because I am not pregnant as far as I know. My period is  due in a week, i took a test it says negative. Is it too soon, does moisture come out of your nipples when your not pregnant?

I  have heard of liquid coming out the nipples of non pregnant women its called nipple discharge. I looked it up online and this is what I found I hope it helps.

Nipple discharge, it's called.


Unexpected nipple discharge can be worrisome, but it doesn't often indicate a serious underlying disease. Here's a look at common triggers of nipple discharge.

Because your breast is a gland, your nipples may occasionally secrete fluids, even if you've never been pregnant. Cancer is rarely the underlying cause, but other conditions that require treatment may be. To find the cause, you'll need to see your doctor.
What is nipple discharge?

Unless you're lactating, fluid seeping out of your nipple is referred to as nipple discharge. Non-milk discharge comes out of your breasts through the same nipple openings that carry milk. On each of your nipples is a cluster of about ten of these openings.

One or both breasts may produce a nipple discharge, either spontaneously or when you squeeze your nipples or breasts. A nipple discharge may look milky, or it may be yellow, green, brown or bloody. The consistency of nipple discharge varies from thick and sticky to thin and watery.

Your chances of having nipple discharge increase as you get older and with the number of pregnancies you've had.
Your doctor's assessment

When you go to a doctor to have nipple discharge checked out, you'll need to give a detailed description of what's going on. Specifically:

* What color is the discharge?
* How much discharge is there?
* Does it happen in one or both breasts?
* Does the discharge appear to come from one opening in your nipple or multiple openings?
* Is the discharge spontaneous, or does it happen only when you squeeze your nipple?
* Do you have any other signs and symptoms, such as fever, redness, pain in the breast, headaches or vision changes?
* Have you recently experienced an injury to the chest?
* What medications do you take?

You should definitely see your doc about that. It could just be that you have elevated levels of prolactin, but better to err on the side of caution!

Thanks for your advice but since my last post something weird happened. We are not trying to conceive but we got a little carried away right in the time i was ovulating and they say the sperm can stay there fro days, so I'm thinking if an egg is there to be fertilized it will be right? Anyhoo i started feeling bloated and irritable my breasts were killing me so i started to think I'm pregnant, I mean i have to be. Then on Wednesday i got into an argument with a friend and in th middle of it i just felt a sharp pain then i started cramping and when i got home i was spotting then later on early the next morning i was having heavy cramping and a little clotting but later on in the day no more cramping and now it just brown spotting. Could it be the stressful situation that i was in that cause a miscarriage? because this is not a usual period for me my period is not due until Monday.

You are 12?  Do you have a parent you could talk to?  Ask your school counsler or school nurse.  They can help you with questions about your body.

it is probably just your body going through its changes, but you should speak to someone who can tell you all about it.  You will feel much better.

Take a pregnancy test. All of your symptoms can also be due to your impending period. Some women have a discharge when its that time of the month. If you don't get your period soon, and a pregnancy test is neg see your doctor

Hi there.  This is a very old thread.  You'll get more answers if you start your own by going to the top of the forum and hitting "Ask a question".  

Young ladies will have nipple discharge due to hormonal issues.  It's often harmless.  Tell our moms about it.  It rarely has anything to do with pregnancy.  good luck

Hi there! I'm not a doctor but I used to have the same issues you're dealing with... And it was because my prolactin was higher than normal due to a Polycystic ovary syndrome, responsible for my hormonal issues... So my advice for you is to tell your moms and look for an endocrinologist to get the proper treatment. ;) in my case it's been two years since I began my treatment and that clear liquid has disappeared.. I hope this could be helpful.

I think it's associated with breast growth. I'm a trans girl who just started hormones and I just started having breast buds that do the same thing. U probably just got ur boobs growing like me.

Hi there.  No, we do not lactate when our breasts are growing.  That is not accurate.  It's due to a relationship between lactation and your hormones.  Whether you are producing too much estrogen naturally or you are taking it in the form of birth control pills or are adding them to your regime to change sexes, it will cause discharge (that is IF an infection has been ruled out).  It's very common.  I'd try not to 'express' it and see a doctor if it is happening so that they can determine why your hormones are out of sync.  good luck

Hi, that isn't a sign of early pregnancy usually.  Why are you having 'unprotected sex each time you meet your boyfriend"?  Please use protection and have safe, responsible sex.  Also, if you are late for your period, take a pregnancy test.  good luck

My tubes are tied clipped and burned and I'm having Clear white sticky stuff coming from my breast and I also had a breast reduction and my Dr told me that my tubes can come undone after 4 years my mother in law and some more people told me I might be pregnant because my 3 month old nephew do not like me he cries everytime I get him so does that mean I might be pregnant I need answers o and I took a expired pregnancy test and it came back negative but someone said a expired one is not accurate

Ok first of all your tubes are tied your not pregnant so you have nothing to worry about I'm not a doctor but to tell you I'm 11 telling you the truth I'm going through the same thing with this liquid. I've heared that it's a normal thing for girls. And it can start at any age for me I didn't have my period ever not yet. So I know I'm not pregnant. So I suggest you go to someone you trust and tell them example Mom, good friend,and after you tell someone you trust talk to a doctor and your mom friend Partner whatever will be right by your side promise. Like i said it's a natural thing called human nature.
