I got a female friend who's 15 and she's having brown breast discharge, what would that be? Note: Also she says here period is late but last time we talked in depth they weren't so regular anyway
Discharge from the nipples can be caused by a number of different things, and most of them aren't serious, but it would still be a very good idea for her to talk to her doctor. He/she would be in the best position to determine the cause of the discharge.
As for the late period, there are several possible causes: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?. Too, it's not unusual for teenagers to have irregular periods when they first start out. It often takes the body some time to adjust.
Hope this helps!
