No fun! I couldn't breast feed either, but it was because of a med I was taking for my crohn's disease and not knowing whether or not it passed in breast milk. I also ended up with a premie- so she needed extra calories anyway.
I got to the point that I got a "sleep bra" from motherhood and wore that because I didn't want to drip all over the place at night. When I finally had my daughter I couldn't make enough milk. That was frustrating. I lactated for 12 years and finally have a baby and nothing!
It is so nice to see someone else say that happens. I was 17 the first time that happened. I sneezed and my shirt was wet. I went to the Dr. As if being a teen and having that happen wasn't humiliating enough the Dr.s reply was stop pinching your nipples. I to this day have no idea what she imagined my private life to be. It wasn't until I was well into my 20's that a Dr. took notice. I had high normal prolactin levels. At first the Dr. said there was nothing to do. I insisted that they do something and they put me on Spironolactone. It helped with the milk and facial hair. I stopped when I was pregnant. I haven't needed it but I know it did help then. I would say look into that. Hope they can help you.
