    Good morning, Sorry about that. Milky discharge from the breast when not breastfeeding is called galactorrhea. It is as a result of excessive production of an hormone called prolactin in a woman. It can also be due to some medications in which non of those you mentioned is among. But if I may ask, you were being given a lot of analgesics, hope you know your genotype? Try and take plenty fluid and avoid strenuous activities. You should also see a gynaecologist for the milky discharge so that you can be given the right drugs. Regarding your menses, I think everything is in order. Have a nice day
