    Why am I lactating if I'm not pregnant?

    A:

    According to the Mayo Clinic, lactation outside of pregnancy or breastfeeding, or galactorrhea, is usually caused by an abnormal excess of the hormone prolactin, which normally stimulates milk production. This, in turn, can have several causes, including drug use, certain herbs, pituitary tumors, hypothyroidism or excessive breast stimulation. Galactorrhea can also manifest without any known cause or in response to injuries of the breast or spinal cord.
