Possible causes of breast/nipple discharge? I'm very anxious please help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all, 

 This morning, after checking a small abrasion I have on one nipple (from uh, some rather rough foreplay), I noticed some cloudy, milky discharge coming out of said nipple. It's fairly clear with some milk coloured clouds. Out of curiosity, I checked the other breast, and the same thing occurred. As far as I can tell, the discharge only comes out if I squeeze the breast. It's not a lot, but a good sized drop comes out.  

The only possible thing I could think of is the fact that my body can be quite sensitive to hormones, and I just used my birth control patch (ortho evra) to skip two periods. I don't believe I could be pregnant, as I literally just finished a heavy, week long period yesterday.  

For now I've opted to stop touching them, though checking to see if the discharge is still there is very tempting. I've also placed tissues in my bra, to see if there was any leaking later today. 

Any ideas? My mom (an OBGYN) told me it can be a fluke, and to leave it for a few days before deciding anything.
