Lactation is the production of milk from the mammary glands. Normally, female breasts undergo various changes during pregnancy, in order to get ready for breastfeeding when the baby is born. However, in some cases the production of milk can occur with no relation to pregnancy.  The lactation process unrelated to pregnancy is known as galactorrhea.

Galactorrhea occurs due to high levels of Prolactin. Prolactin is the hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which initiates lactation.  In low levels, prolactin can’t stimulate the production of milk from the mammary glands. However, when this hormone reaches its critical levels in the blood it affects the function of the mammary glands, by enlarging them and starting to produce milk components. These milk components are later released through the excretory ducts.
