To be honest, I'm somewhat embarrassed to even be asking about this.
Earlier today, I was showering, and noticed a dot of a milky white fluid on my left nipple. I've heard that sebum, if thats right, can block up pores in and around the nipple, and has the same consistency as pus from a pimple or something. Anyway, this fluid was just that... Fluid. It wasnt thick or solid-like, or anything of the sort.
I had my period late July/early August, and am not due for my next period for a while.
My boyfriend and I use condoms regularly, but sometimes after things get going. Meaning, precum has not been something thaf we usually worry about.
To get to the point, I'm not really sure what this means. The fluid only comes out of the left side, as far as I can tell, and it's only a pin sized amount. On top of that, it will only come out if a large amount of pressure is applied, and I squeeze pretty hard.
This hasn't ever happened before, and to my knowledge, it is way too early to take a pregnancy test, so I'm sort of stuck at the moment.
Is there a possibility that I may be pregnant? Or, is something like this common? Or is it something else?

Hi owls, welcome to scarleteen! While some people do experience discharge from their nipples sometimes (and aren't pregnant), it's always a good idea to talk to your doctor if your body starts doing something it didn't used to do! Sometimes sudden nipple discharge can be a symptom of something else going on, so it'd be good to double check with your doctor.
