Shocked ok so me & my hubby have been ttc for 5mo.Im on day 21. My periods are 28 days. I noticed a small amount of white liquid come out of my nipple during a self examination. It was a very small amount less than a drop. Is it normal? Can this be breast milk do you think this is an early sign of pregnancy? Shocked

I would go and see a doc as it can indicate a possible problem (don't want to scare you but best to make sure!). I've heard of things like nipple rings causing that (happened to to a friend). It can also be caused by drugs etc also. It would be too early to produce breast milk at your stage I would have thought, and in any case you normally produce a yellow liquid called colostrum until the baby is born (at which point you produce milk). I found a link for you but please don't read too much into it - i'm sure its nothing to worry about!!

Thank you for the great link. I called my doctor and made an appointment to check things out.
