lactating and not pregnant
What could be the cause of lactaion without pregnancy?
I have been lactating for a year now and have never been pregnant. I asked my doctor about it and was told it was a side effect of the birth control was on. My lactation started after I got off BC and i have not been on BC since Febuary 2007.

I have the exact problem and I have seen my Family Doctor about it.  He sent me for an MRI to check my prolactin level and also had me have a mammogram.  Both tests came back as normal.  I have not in the past taken any birth control nor am I currently taking birth control.  I am only  25 and in good health.  I don't know why I do, but maybe an MRI or mammogram might give you an answer.  Glad to know I am not the only non-pregnant non-breast feeding person out there who lactates...LOL

symptoms was fluid from my nipple (for about a year)
