One more week to go to test! 11dpo lactating!? Help?


So my hubby and I are not really trying to get pregnant but we use a LadyComp fertility tracker as our protection and just don't have sex on really fertile days. THIS MONTH, however, we were so busy all week and both completely forgot about everything and had an oops on a red day. We didn't use protection.

My cycles are around 32-34 days long. Around day 17 of my cycle I had spotting for about two days, which had never happened to me in my life. So I googled around and found out it was probably just ovulation spotting (maybe!), and then a couple days later I woke up and ran to the bathroom thinking I was going to throw up. The day before I had a relatively negative reaction to a vitamin I took and had severe nausea and discomfort for about 10-20 min, so I thought maybe that was just what it was from.

Around day 23 of my cycle (approx 7dpo) I had constipation, on and off yeast infection symptoms, very very minor small amounts more spotting (just yellowish-brown dried cm and a bit of pink on tp, sorry details). Today is day 27 of my cycle (approx 11dpo). My period is probably not due for 5-7 more days, but I have the following symptoms:

- breast tenderness around the outsides of my breasts, when squeezed I can squeeze white milky type stuff out. almost a tsp last night?! this has NEVER happened to me before and I have never been pregnant before!

- Nausea (pretty much all day my stomach just feels uneasy and spinning, but it could just be anxiousness.. though last night I could NOT sleep at all for an hour I was so hungry and nauseous) It feels like I'm just starvingly hungry to the point of sickness, except eating doesn't make it go away..

- So hungry. so hungry. so hungry but so nauseous!

- So exhausted no matter what even if i sleep enough I'm just
as tired as if I had only gotten 6 hours of sleep.

- SPACED OUT... I have no clue what I'm doing, forgetful, confused all the time. I could just stare into space.

- Feeling cold and shaky.


So I bought a set of two Early Response HPT's today. I used one this afternoon and it was a strong negative, but I'm so confused. I may not get my period for 5-7 more days though so it could be tooo early but I thought for sure if I were having this many symptoms it would be positive.

My main concern is the breasts...I know leaking can happen if you've had a baby before but I haven't. Did anyone else have this happen and were you pregnant? Does it sound like I'm pregnant? I'm going to wait another week I think to test again.

Anyways sorry for rambling on, I would really appreciate some feedback on this! Thank you guys so much.

Didn't want to r&r but I have had lactation but only if I squeeze hard! I had a m/c so it may be something to do with that but the Dr. put me on some medicine to lower my prolactin level as it was a bit high and was causing the lactation.

I was going to say get your prolactin checked! I had the lactation you're describing along with pregnancy symptoms a few years ago. Hubby and I definitely weren't trying so drs were confused. It turned out to be an imbalance caused by a small tumor on my pituitary gland. All they do it keep an eye on it (noncancerous and low low risk) but its good to know what's causing it. Now years later and almost 18 weeks pregnant I don't have any lactation yet. So it could be prego symptoms but it sounds a lot more like an imbalance. I know I was even throwing up and missed my period for 3 months! So please go get checked out if it turns out not to be a bfp.

Wow! That's crazy. I hope it isn't that! haha. I will definitely get it checked out. I'm going to go to the Dr to get a test anyway even if I get a bfn so I'll mention it to him. Thank you for replying

Update.. I got my period the day before yesterday. I tested in the morning anyway and it was a BFN. I am still going to get a blood test soon to check my hormones out though. Thanks for all your help girls
