Is it possible to produce breast milk without being pregnant?

I'm 22-years-old and came off the Pill three months ago. It is highly unlikely that I am pregnant, but I appear to be producing milk. It is possible to produce breast milk when not pregnant for several different reasons.

Lactate levels in LABC biopsies were assessed ex vivo by bioluminescence.

Blood tests can be used to measure the level of hormones in your body and an eye test can show whether or not there is any significant enlargement of the pituitary gland.

If the gland is enlarged, it affects how much you can see at any one time ('visual fields') and this can be picked up by an optometrist.

You've made it through fatigue, morning sickness, strange cravings and even intense back pain, so you can deal with anything at week 34, right? Not a fun thought, but it may happen as you near your due date.

For some women, the thought of leaky breasts is alarming, not because of health concerns, but rather due to worries that they'll ruin a perfectly good bra.

As a nursing mother, you probably have tons of questions running through your mind.

You are concerned about your little one’s health and growth, and want to do nothing less than the best.

Medication such as metoclopramide or thioridazine can cause a rise in prolactin, but you don't appear to be on any medicines from the information that you have sent me.

Pregnancy is the other main cause, but milk production is not usually until later in pregnancy and you say that you have had regular periods – therefore this explanation is unlikely. Occasionally women have slight but regular bleeds in the early stages of pregnancy, so I would advise a pregnancy test, just to be sure.

The hormone responsible for milk production is called prolactin.

It is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain.

In fact, babies born prematurely between weeks 34 and 37 often have no health problems and may require only short-term care after birth.
