White Discharge from Nipples

Q: Could white breast discharge from my nipples be a problem?

A: Common causes of galactorrhea include:

  • Use of certain psychoactive drugs
  • Prolactinoma (high prolactin)
  • Hypothyroidism (low thyroid)
  • If you ovulate regularly, then the galactorrhea is unlikely to be a problem when trying to conceive. If you do not ovulate, then the galactorrhea could be a sign of elevated prolactin (hyperprolactinemia).
    Either way, you may want to talk to your doctor about this discharge and probably have your prolactin level checked.
