Welcome to ehealthforum,
Breast milk or breast discharge can be present during your ovulation time, period time or even at other times during your menstrual cycle if associated with hormonal problems. You should consider getting examination and thorough evaluation done by your gynecologist to identify the cause and get you started on appropriate treatment. Most common cause is due to high Prolactin levels.
Take care.
