Hello, guest

[ Original Post ]
I need some advice. My girlfiend is pregnant and tells me that I am the father. In order to prove this she squeezed some milk out of her brest. The issue for me is that I first had sex with her eight weeks earlier from that date and I have been reading that a women can not lactate until the second trimester. Ladies help me out here.............. can a women lactate within eight weeks of pregnancy? I am desperate for an answer!

You don't usually lactate until the very end of pregnancy sometimes not even until after you deliever. I don't know what to tell you but I have never heard of that unless she was breast feeding a previous child and never dried up????

I am nine months pregnant and don't even have milk yet, the dr says that the baby brings the milk in after a couple of days of suckling.

It is my understanding that you start to produce colostrum about 5 months into your pregnancy and the milk actually doesn't come in until about 1 1/2 to 2 days after delivery. That's how it was with my first one atleast.

i am five months along, and every now and again when i wake up I will have "leaked" out colostrum....only out of my right nipple...i can't sqeezed any excess out, it's just a freak thing that happens....but keep in mind every woman has a differant body. ask her to go to the Doc. for a pregnancy test, and ask when the beginning of her last menstral cycle was and how long it usual last...you can plug it into a ovulation, or due date caculator on line.

I had clear fluid coming out in my first few weeks but its now a whitish colour its more like sticky fluid so maybe you should wait for the scan which will tell you how far along she is if she doesn't want you to go then you should worry

I have a white liquid coming out of my nipples. I'm not sure why it's doing this, I'm not pregnant b/c I'm on my period and have never had sex. what is this a sign of? please help, i'm really scared.

I'm 27 weeks now but when I was in my third month I lactated and still do. I can't put pressure on my breasts or it will come out without warning. Everyone is different so it all depends on your body and what it wants to do. I'm going to breast feed and I'm hoping our baby girl will take to it.

Yes, I lactated from 4 weeks, especially with her first, if it is. 

Name: Jody | Date: Nov 7th, 2005 8:39 AM
My Friend had a bit of milf come through at 11 weeks. However very little. I wouldn't say that she was lactating.

im not sure if im pregnant but lately ive notices white stuff often dry comming from my nipples. im a bit scarred because i dont know if its normal. 

Name: denise | Date: Nov 11th, 2005 8:04 PM
I didn't produce milk until the 4th day after I delivered 

Name: Christy | Date: Nov 23rd, 2005 4:03 AM
As a matter of fact it is possible. A friend of mine lactated when she was about 10 weeks.

i actually begin to leak at 3 months, a lot. it was a common thing that i was leaking so much, the doctors said it was normal. it could be possible

i dont think at 8 weeks pregnant that would happen but i guess after reading other people say it could so best think to do is go to ultrasound with her and find out how far along she is!

sorry to tell ya hun but no she lactate within eight wks 

Name: kryssie | Date: Dec 27th, 2005 11:20 PM
im am 8 and half months pregnant and at about 4-5 months my breast started to leak... 

Name: JB | Date: Dec 29th, 2005 7:31 PM
Normally she wouldn't be lactating, but if she has any pituatary issues or small tumors that can signal the body to lactate earlier and even without a pregnancy. 

Name: Heather | Date: Dec 29th, 2005 9:17 PM
I think she is more pregnant than she says she is and wants to pin this baby on you because with my first pregnancy I didn't have the colostrum (yellow liquid)come out until after his birth and this is my 2nd pregnancy and I am 19 wks pregnant and just started leaking the colostrum at 17 weeks.

Now Renee,
I would not say no way.
Not by my experience.

Yes Frank, a woman can lactate in the first trimester. It is not necessarily common, but it is possible.

However the question of Frank's girlfriend isn't so much as is she pregnant or not, for in time that will prove to be true or untrue (and looking at the date of his post, I say it's probably evident by this time). The question is, is he the father.

Bottom line Frank, if you have reason to doubt, then request a DNA test.

But chances are real good, based on the date of his posting, Frank isn't coming back to this forum, lol.

Manda and Others
Concerned about non pregnancy lactation
(if you really do have this problem and are not just silly grasshoppers entertaining yourselves at our expense)

Looking for medical advice about such matters on the internet is very foolish.

Call your doctor!

hi frank!!! I first had colostrum at 22 weeks and the doctor told me that it was really early!!! and not very common even at that stage i think she may be further on that she is letting on!!! hope you get it sorted mate all the best!!!!!

Dont listen to these females on here telling you that the baby isnt yours because she shouldnt be having liquid coming out her nipples. In fact that's how my sister found out she was pregnant , she had a white/ yellowish liquid coming from her nipples at like 3-4 wks and took a pregnancy test that said no , but when she went to the doctor she showed them and they did another test that said yes. So congrats on the baby , and goodluck.

Hey everyone. I have been trying to breastfeed for the longest time and it has been so frustrating. To top it all off, my nipples are really sore and I am so tired! However, I found lots of great health advice from a fabulous website - check it out: www.womens-health.co.uk
