Just wondering how long after finishing feeding that
milk production stops. I stopped feeding in march but
still make milk.
Happened to mention to gp who is sending me for
Prolactin tests and said it might be making me
infertile!

Could be normal, eggy - milk can be present in a water-free form and present on stimulation for a long time, but if you are actually leaking and feeling you are continuing to make it, a test is prob a good idea after this length of time. Yes, it can impact on fertility.

No it never leaks, but I can make it come
out iyswim.

Is it sort of like non-diluted breastmilk?

Um it's sometimes more like colostrum.
Or quite creamy milk but only a couple
of drops

Honestly, sounds normal to me

But no harm in getting a test done.

Thanks that's reassuring, but of course
will get test done to make sure
