Nipple discharge!  Too much estrogen? Nipple discharge! Too much estrogen?

Nipple discharge! Too much estrogen?

Ladies, today after my shower, I noticed a little build up on the tip of my nipples, like something had been discharging, and sort of caked on there. I could rub it off. Sorry if this is tmi! But I need advice!
Is this caused by too much estrogen? I switched from the .05 Vivelle patch to Evamist about nine days ago, and now I am applying two squirts twice a day to my forearm, and using .05 Vagifem every night. I was thinking maybe to decrease the Evamist ? Can too much estrogen cause this? I go back to the dr in about three weeks for a hormone check.
Any experience on this is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Nipple discharge! Too much estrogen?

I have had similar - actually producing small amounts of milk at times.

Dr tested prolactin levels and they came back high. Not sure if it's from too much E, but there is some correlation between more E and more discharge.

Dr mentioned prolactinoma. Retested prolactin after 6 months and it had decreased.

I would not worry about it unless it's only one sided discharge. You said both sides the same. Ask your dr for peace of mind but mine is not worried.
