OMG, eww... a blood clot came from my nipple

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So something really scary just happened. I EP for DS.

 

I pumped this morning and was playing computer games at the time... and then I looked down and to my horror, I saw a bunch of blood and milk. I stopped pumping (after 20 minutes was done) and picked up the bottle. I investigated it and saw a CHUNK of blood in the bottle. yikes2.gif How in the world did that come from my nipple?? And it wasn't a small thing or anything. It was the size of the palm of hand! I had no pain in my breast or anything and I only EP nowadays to twice a day. Although, there was pain from it maybe 2 months ago? (I had to go down a pump session because of it) 

 

Uhm... I guess my question is.. is this normal? lol.

 

The picture is still in my head...and I am horrified beyond belief.

And I'm going to guess that this is not normal... :S

:( I'm not sure. I tried googling and I saw something about a broken blood vessel from vigorous pumping? lol 

 I would call your care provider. I would be completely freaked out too. *hugs*
