Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne. I can help you today.
You're right that some yellowish discharge from the nipples is not terribly concerning. But it should still be checked out. An exam by a gynecologist, perhaps a thyroid blood test and prolactin hormone test plus making sure you're up to date on your mammogram screening would rule-out concerning causes. Many women have such discharge without any abnormalities on evaluation.
The bitter/sour taste is most likely from something in your diet. Spices and especially garlic can impact the taste and smell of all of the various fluids produced by the body. It's not a sign of anything worrisome that the fluid has an odd taste.
I hope this information has been reassuring and helpful. Let me know if I can clarify anything.
Yes, that's possible too. Medications would be on the list of things that can cause body fluids to have unusual odor or taste.
At any rate, if the thyroid and prolactin levels are normal and breast screening normal, it's not at all likely to be anything serious.
I hope this is reassuring?
You can try taking chlorophyll tablets. That can change the odor and taste of various body fluids.
Anything else for today?
