Brown/ discharge like paste from breast after pushed on

This answer was rated:

Brown/green discharge like paste from breast after pushed on breast since it was so painful. Not breastfed for 3 years - also period has been getting further and further apart. 4th August last one and still not got the next one when I used to be every 4 weeks.
JA: Apologies for the personal questions, but are you using any contraceptives? How long have you dealt with the discharge?
Customer: No contraceptives - I've had pain in my breast for a long time since stopping feeding but it's got worse and my periods have altered.
JA: Got it. When was your last smear test, and what were the results? Any swelling, discoloration, or unusual smells?
Customer: Smear was last year and all good.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have OI type 1.

I've had white milky clear discharge if I've pressed in the past after stopping breast feeding but nothing like what I saw yesterday.

A greenish discharge from the breast indicates an infection.

This is something that you should show to your GP.

You are likely to need antibiotics for this.

It is not likely to be related to the change in your periods, you can discuss that with your GP also. A course of oral contraceptive pills can help regularize your periods.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
