Left breast leaking blood??

Does anyone have this happening to them?  I just noticed tonight that my left breast is leaking blood(?) in addition to the colostrum because I'm wearing a white shirt and I have little blood stains where my nipple is at.  I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so I will definitely ask what's going on but since I'm online, I thought I'd ask you guys...

  • Are you having problems with cracked/dry/sore nipples yet?  I hear if you have really dry/cracked/sore nipple that they can sometimes bleed.  GL.Smile

  • Definitely ask your Dr. tomorrow.  I wouldn't bother to call now since you have an appointment already scheduled so soon. 

    I have had leaky nipples for years (high prolactin levels exacerbated by BCP hormones) and was always told that as long as it stayed clear/slightly milky it was okay, but if it ever became bloody to go to the Dr.

  • I've been told that if I have blood from my nipples to call L&D or my doctor immediately.
  • I have no idea if you still check this website as this was posted so long ago but I am experiencing the exact same thing and just had an ultrasound of my left breast today.  They couldn't tell me much as they can't perform a mammo (cause I'm 27 weeks pregnant) so I basically have to wait till I deliver for them to be able to properly diagnose me.  I am obviously still a bit worried as it is blood and everything I read states the worst!   Can I ask if yours eventually stopped bleeding or did they find the cause of why it was bleeding?  THanks for you help.  Just very worried!!!
