  • Heavily lactating but never pregnant, why!?!?

    I'm a healthy 18yo female on 20mg of Prozac, 5'6, 124 pounds. My weight is about what is should be and hasn't fluctuated recently, I haven't made any significant life style changes that I can think of, and I've never noticed myself lactating before in my life. About a month ago my breasts started getting swollen and tender. I took a pregnancy test, which was negative, and talked to a nurse, who said that the swelling and pain was most likely just a hormonal fluke and not to worry too much. Today my period arrived about a week earlier than planned... and I also noticed that I am lactating in both my breasts. It's a surprisingly big amount, not as white as cow milk but not really clear. Other than being a week early, my period is the same as it always is on the first day, which is very heavy. I am going to see a doctor soon, but can anyone give me any ideas about what is going on? I'm pretty worried about this. I recorded a clip demonstrating just how extreme it is :/

  • in an article "evaluation and treatment of galactorrhea" by pena

    different causes are listed, 20% being from meds and Prozac is listed as one
    so if you go to a different Dr than one who prescribed med, make sure you tell Dr you are on it
