    Hello good morning and sorry about that. That is a symptom of what is called hyperprolactinemia, an hormonal imbalance that may also cause irregularity in your menstruation, and even cause inability to conceive. you should see a gynecologist to evaluate you properly and have your hormonal profile checked

    causes can be physiologic or pathologic. physiologic causes include pregnancy, physical stimulation and sometimes stress. pathologic causes include hypothalamic pituitary pathologies/disorders,drugs such as anti psychotics and certain contraceptives.
