Breasts feel engorged,but not pregnant

I feel like i did when i was breast feeding my daughter. My breasts have that same engorgement feeling, but no production. It's been over 5 years since i breast fed. Does anyone know what can cause this? I am pretty sure i'm not pregnant.

Too much nipple stimulation can cause lactation when ur not pregnant or breast feeding. Do you have anything leaking out of them or do they just feel heavy? If there is no obvious signs of milk in them then you may want to take a trip to the doctors just to make sure nothing else is going on.

The only way to know for sure that you are not pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. Why not check just to be sure. If it is negative then call the clinic and speak to the doctors nurse and mention your symptoms and have her check if the doctors feels he should see you at the office or not.

I mentioned it to my husband last night and he said I had a little discharge. I think I will take a test, and no matter what the outcome, contact my doctor. Thanks so much
