Self-management

Lifestyle and home remedies

Often, milky discharge associated with idiopathic galactorrhea goes away on its own, particularly if you can avoid breast stimulation or medications that are known to cause nipple discharge.

To minimize breast stimulation:

  • Don't stimulate your nipples during sexual activity
  • Avoid performing frequent breast self-exams, manipulating your nipples
  • Wear clothing that minimizes friction between the fabric and your nipples
