I am almost 24 years old, never been pregnant and haven't been sexually active for a full year.
A month ago, during my last period I noticed some white dry crusty stuff on my left nipple. I checked my right and it didn't have anything like that on it.
Trying to figure it out, I squeezed my left nipple and white milky liquid came out. I did the same to my right to see if both were doing this and my right produced nothing.
It has been a month since my last period and I am on one again. I am still lactating but only when I squeez the nipple and still just on the left.

My question is, can a woman of my sexual past and lack of a pregnancy produce milk from just one nipple? Or should I go to the doctor and find out if it is an infection that just happens to be coming out of the same place milk should be when I do have kids?

Help!

It can totally happen and it probably was not milk it was probably colustrum which, yes you do produce when you are pregnant and when you start to lactate (it comes before the milk) anyway if there is enough fluctuation in your hormones it can totally happen.

However you may want to consult your doctor to make sure it's not an infection or something.

Yes, it can happen. Even if youve never been pregnant. Check with your doctor, I recently went to mine and she did some blood work and wants me to do a CT Scan, she said I could possibly have a small tumor in my pituitary glad.
