You see... I'm 19, my body's what you'd consider 'fully developed' by now, my periods are fairly regular... I mean, except for the fact that I have inverted nipples, there seems to be nothing 'wrong' about it.

But some days ago, I happened to be sort of 'squeezing' one of my nipples, because I was trying to, um, get it out ... when a drop of a whitish, almost transparent liquid came out of it. I tried the same thing on the other nipple, and it happened as well... And it freaked me out. There was no pain when I did it, no strange 'anything' except for the fact that I had never seen it before.

So, is that suposed to be a normal thing? If you think about it, breasts' purpose is to have liquid get out of them... so maybe it's supposed to happen and I just hadn't realized it before. Should I worry? Does it have anything to do with hormones and my cycle?

(For some reason, it's really REALLY freaking me out )

Actually, no, liquid should not come from the breasts of women who aren't lactating.

I'd check in with your doctor: could be a simple case of an infected gland, but it's worth making sure. And don't queeze them to try and get more liquid out, btw.
