I've been on my period about three days, today I noticed I am lactating a little, just wondering if I'm pregnant or if it could be something else?

You are probably not pregnant.  While it's not unheard of for pregnant ladies to have periods, it's also not likely.  Discharge from your breasts is something I would bring to your doctor's attention, especially if it's not something you have normally.  Please call your GP or OBGYN and make an appointment.

I had that problem & kept wondering if I was pregnant. I was lactating not too long after my period was over. So I made an appt with my OB & she did some tests & told me that i wasnt pregnant but one of my hormone levels was high & thats what was causing me to lactate. maybe youre having the same thing. anyway id make an appt to talk to your woman dr about it.
