Huh...interesting. Have you tried putting cold cabbage leaves on your breasts? They are suppose to help dry everything up. Just might be the way your body is.

If anything I could quit my job and become a lactation surrogate or nurse or whatever it is.

I understand that one for sure. And yup, totally forgot you can def lactate when you get preggo. Keep us updated for sure! Very curious what the doctor would have to say if you are NOT preggo and still lactating.

Well I haven't been to the doctor yet I don't like taking off from work. If I don't have a period in April I will definitely go. When I skipped this month and discovered lactation I was afraid I was pregnant but 6 or more pregnancy tests have said no. Being pregnant wouldn't be a bad thing except for my wedding dress probably wouldn't fit in July. I mostly get on here to complain about weird bodily functions and I'm lonely (always busy and finish things too fast) when I go to work and need girl friends.

LOL, well I have not done it but I know it is helpful for women that are drying up their breast milk, and are in pain. Something in cabbage leaves helps dry everything up. It has to be your hormones, and the warm stimulation from the shower. That is so weir you are stil lactating. What has your doctor said about it?

Haha I have not... sorry for laughing I've just heard of that and it's just funny now because it's just a little but I think it's affecting my period and it only happens when I shower.
