My wife is not pregnant, but she is producing milk from her left breast?

my wife has 22 years woman who cannot possibly be pregnant, but I seem to be producing milk from her left breast.

There isn’t much, I noticed it isn’t accident and her breasts are not painful at all.

she does not take any pill before 2 years from still now. she under a thyroid problem and also migraine headache.
no menstruation problem, period are ok. milk color white and no bad smell.

This is worrying me and I’m not sure what I should do. I don’t think she have any lumps or anything.
Is it possible to produce breast milk without being pregnant?

Reasons for lactatiin without pregnancy are
nerve damage, chronic kidney disease, and spinal chord injuries. Some herbs like cumin, fennel, anise seeds and kelaba
Smoking pot and some medications
Also benign tumers in pituitary gland can cause this condition
Good Luck

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Occasionally women have slight but regular bleeds in the early stages of pregnancy, so I would advise a pregnancy test, just to be sure.
A rare cause of high prolactin levels is a benign growth in the pituitary gland that over-stimulates the prolactin-releasing tissue.
A blood test may show something and hormones prolactin test.

HI
THIS MAY HAPPEN DUE TO HORMONAL IMBALANCES . PITUITARY GLAND TUMOURS ESPECIALLY ADENOMA CAN BE A CAUSE. CONSULT A ENDOCRINOLOGIST .

hi
this is a rare phenomenon actually. This usually doesnt happen unless and untill a woman is pregnant. Get a laboratory test done for pregnancy confirmation.
some autoimmune endocrine disorders can cause premature lactation.
thanks

hello there
this can be due to hormonal changes. get her oestrogen progesterone levels checked.
