I had my daughter almost 3 years ago this April. It's been about a little over 2 years since I nursed yet I still produce light milk randomly. Like wet shirts for no apparent reason. What can I do to stop this?

Hi there and welcome.  Well, I had this same thing prior to having kids at all.  It was diagnosed as something called prolactinemia.  It was a hormonal situation/imbalance.  I produced too much estrogen.  They looked at my pituitary gland to make sure I didn't have a small noncancerous tumor which is a common cause of prolactinemia which I didn't have.  I had a bit of a slow thyroid and this excess estrogen production.  Mine self regulated but I would at this point consult your doctor about it.  good luck

The pill might help if you're not on it already...and try to minimize nipple stimulation.

I actually had trouble with the pill as my lactation (ugh, really NOT cool when you are a single girl with no children . . .  LOL) was due to too much estrogen and many pills are estrogen based.  So, you'd have to talk to your doctor to see which pill if any would work in the situation of a hormonal imbalance.  good luck

Thanks all. Im going to have to talk to my doctor as ive noticed an increase at that lately.  Really gross and random. Even when I was on the shot, it would happen but I think it is completely out my system now and it's spotting all day.
