As strange as it might sound it is possible to lactate without ever becoming pregnant it's called galactorrhea. You  want to see a Dr to make sure it's not a symptom Of a more serious condition

There is something called prolactemia.  I had this myself.  I had a hormone imbalance in which I produced too much estrogen.  Your doctor will most likely do some blood work as a starting point.  good luck
