I've noticed a tiny bit of white discharge from my nipples, but I don't have a baby. Does this mean I'm pregnant?

John Missanelli, DO, is a gynecologist at Lourdes Health System.

Discharge from the breast of any color and consistency is normal.

When discovered, it can seem alarming, but it does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant or have an emergent medical problem.

If your menstrual cycle is predictable and you have missed periods, then you could possibly be pregnant.  A pregnancy test is the best way to determine pregnancy, not a nipple discharge.  If discharge persists, then you should go see your gynecologist.
