Okay, I am 17 years old, and both of my nipples have dried colostrum, I think it's called. It's dried yellowish stuff. They've been this way for a while now. I have never been pregnant, or even sexually active for that matter. I'm not sure what is wrong or if I should maybe get checked out. Someone, please help inform me!
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women experience breast discharge during ovulation time or during period time. Few women also get breast discharge due to hormonal imbalances, PCOD, hyperprolactinemia, breast disorders (like fibrocystic changes, infection etc), hypothyroidism, etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
