I know this is a strange question but i am intrigued to know whether anyone else has experianced their breast filling with milk just after an Orgasm and does anyone know why this happens ? Please dont tell me im the only one.

I have a two month old DD and have only just been getting back into the swing of things with regards to sex.
I think I feel my boobs leaking milk during orgasm. But I don't really feel the milk let down when DD is breastfeeding.

Yes, I know what you mean! I also used to, ahem, squirt DP with milk when I orgasmed sometimes. Definitely not just you!

Oh reason I'm not sure yet is because I've always had my bra on! :-)

Oxytocin, perhaps? I can confirm that if you breastfeed for long enough, your boobs stop reacting during sex and feel totally 'normal' again.

Oxytocin. The hormone of lurve.

In the early days I would sometimes leak and feel very tingly/letdown even just during the foreplay bit and I hated it, felt very selfconscious and better keeping bra with pads on.

Tis very normal. Now DS is a bit older it all stopped and no leaking these days. DH wasn't that bothered by it but I hated it.

Yes, I've experienced it, but I have a very strong let down. Problematically strong, in fact.

Nothing to contribute, just a bit envy at all your exciting sounding sex lives! Although is slightly better now we are ttc again smile... No leakage to report though.

Lynzjam - was a bit blush when I realised I was reading your post hehe! The hazard of having RL friends on here, lucky we are used to a bit TMI in conversation I suppose ;)

Was just reminiscing about this with DH the other day- I used to leak like a fountain, it was most irritating! It did calm down though once I stopped leaking randomly throughout the day as well. (Which was at about 6 months) Breastpads are your best bet!
