Resolved Question:

Until recently, I had been using the Ortho Evra patch for birth control. When I stopped taking it my first period was 2 weeks late, and then I didn't have another period for 3 months. I took pregnancy tests regularly to ensure that it wasn't a pregnancy effecting my cycle. I just started my period two days ago, so I felt relieved, but today I discovered some slight lactation. Is this normal, or am I pregnant?

There are several possible reasons for isolated slight lactation. Random variation in hormone production or sexual stimulation are some reasons. A significant hormone issue is another possible cause. You should have this evaluated by an MD if it persists or returns. IT does NOT necessarily mean you are pregnant. <br />Please click ACCEPT> <br />Feel free to ask a follow-up question. <br />And a BONUS is always appreciated.
