Hello,
Thanks for joining me on ehealthforum.

The white stuff coming out of the nipple could mean galactorrhea. It is a normal thing to happen in the mid cycle or ovulation time for many women. The reason for this is the peak in the hormones. Sometimes sexual intercourse can alter the hormonal balance in a women, leading to such symptoms.
If there is no lump felt in the breast and if there is no pain associated, there is no need to worry.
However, if the amount of secretion increases, or if you have pain or lump associated, report to your doctor for an examination to look for the cause and get treatment.

Hope this would help.
