lactating during sexual stimulation - not breastfeeding

the other day, after very vigorous nipple stimulation by partner, i produced a bit of milk. i was pretty surprised as i stopped breastfeeding a year ago.
has this happened to anyone else? have tried to do google searches for lactating and sex, but obviously keep hitting porn sites!! which wasn't what i was looking for...
please, please don't tell me im pregnant! i had only stopped my period a couple of days before so im very confident i shouldn't be?
i am having bleeding between periods and back pain too. dont know if they're related.

this happened to me for 2 years after each of my 3 kids were born . i went to the gp to ask if i could take somekind of medicine to dry it up and her reply was - im sorry we dont have anything for that but may i suggest that your husband stops playing with them!!!!!

could be your hormones playing up. I would get to a dr.

It's called 'galactorrhoea' - if you google that you will get better results.

LOL at "can I suggest your husband stops playing with them!"grin

I had this happen to me once, and my youngest is 5! Apparently it is quite common, esoecially if you're on the contraceptive pill.

Can be common with over stimulation but best to see dr anyway. When I had it (pre children) they did a bllod test to check for excess hormones (prolactin i think)

i happened nearly every time he touched them or maybe that should say pulled on them!
it made me cringe every time

thanks, thats very reassuring! personally we both thought it was quite sexy, but we are pervs! it was just afterward that the health aspect made me stress.
have got a smear on thurs booked (and chat about bleeding issues) so will mention it to nurse then.
