Leaking breastmilk when you are not breastfeeding.

It is common to have breastmilk leaking even when you are not pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have had a baby you might leak breastmilk or months or even years after you stop breastfeeding.

Some other causes might include:
-Hormone imbalance
-Medication side effect
-Pregnancy that you are not aware of

If you have not had a child or your children are older and you suddenly start leaking breastmilk you should schedule an appointment with your doctor to make sure it isn't a sign of a bigger problem.
