Still producing breast milk 18 months later

Posting here for traffic, but I squeezed my breast and some milk came out.
I finished breastfeeding my son 18 months ago. I was breastfeeding him for just over a year.
Should I be concerned or is this normal?

Go to your doctor. There is a kind of benign tumor of the pituitary gland called a prolactinoma that can cause this. It sounds scary but they're very very treatable with medication and more common than you'd think. Not saying it's definitely that but you really need to get checked out properly just in case.

Thanks for the replies.
My hormones haven’t felt right recently, I was late for my period last month which is very unusual for me, and when it arrived it was very very heavy. I feel tearful a lot and have angry outbursts. I’m bloated on and off and I feel very PMSy. Had really bad ovulation pain this month too.
