Can Breast Produce Milk without Me Being Pregnant?

Answer

In practice, it's possible to produce milk even without being pregnant for various reasons. This is because milk production is triggered by the hormone called prolactin whose quantities can surge for various reasons. Use of certain birth control drugs like those which contain metoclopramide or thioridazine has been associated with increased prolactin/milk production in non-pregnant women.
