Can a 17 year old produce breast milk even if she isnt pregnant?

Ok. So i was doing my monthly examination on myself because breast cancer does run in my family. And as i was squeazing, liquid squirted from my breast. I know im not pregnant so i was wondering if this was normal for a girl my age. Help?

Certainly not abnormal. But not very common.

Go to see your GP and she can reassure you. Some women produce milk quite easily, it could be that you just have high prolactin levels.

Yes it is possible

Hormones are whacked in the teen years, and yes, clear yellow, green (I know...gross, huh?) or milky liquid can normally come from your breasts, especially if it is before your period. If it ever becomes brown or red/bloody, make an appointment with your doctor right away.

Being on the pill can cause it too. (I know...happened to me.)
