You need to see a doctor. Discharge and itching is very likely due to infection or the formation for cysts. My mom had issues with cysts for years. Certain drugs can cause you to produce milk even if you aren't nursing, as can problems with your thyroid. There really are a lot of things that can cause this kind of thing. You do need to see a doctor.

yea i agree with the other posts, go see a dr. And if you have had your tubes tied, you can still get pregnant. I have a friend who had hers tied after having baby, and 1.5 yrs later she was pregnant again.

Unfortunately, even having your tubes tied isn't a 100% guarantee against getting pregnant. I know at least one person who was born after her mom had her tubes tied, and there are many stories out there of it happening.

It doesn't really sound like you're pregnant though. I would definitely say that it's something else, either medication or something affecting your hormones. Depending on your age, it might be related to menopause or an assortment of other things. Definitely see a doctor and find out what they have to say :)

I'd consult a doctor too but maybe its just baby fever! Lol. Make an appointment and get checked out! Always better to be on the safe side!
