Patient : Hi my name is Jessica Roberto. I recently had a surgical abortion exactly a month ago today. 2 days after the abortion i started to take birth control pills. i just realized today thats i have a clear,milky discharge coming from my nipples. i want to know if that is normal.im scared to death hoping im not pregnate again. plzz help!
You have not mentioned at what gestational age you had the surgical abortion. During pregnancy the body undergoes a lot of hormonal and physical changes. Since you had the abortion the hormones will take a while to get stabilised and back to their normal range and this imbalance in these hormones is what is causing the milky discharge. This should clear by itself in a couple of weeks. In case you are doubtful about pregnancy i advice you to take a home pregnancy test. However chances for that to be positive are extremely low. All the best.
