What causes the body to think its pregnant when its not?

My breasts are leaking and I have several other pregnancy symptoms, but every test comes back negative. I know its not too early to tell. What is going on with my body?

    wishful thinking

    the power of the mind is an amazing thing.

    or keep in mind

    I had 5 over the counter tests, six doctors tests and 2 blood tests before I had a positive test. I was 4 months pregnant by that time with my fourth child. Thedoctors would not believe me when I told them I knew I was pregnant.

    It's probably your hormones out of whack. If you've had a baby already than your ducts are already developed and can leak. Also, if you had a miscarriage (even if you didn't know it) your body can go through all of the symptoms of pregnancy..including contractions. It's called a fantom pregnancy.. your body just reacts as if you were carrying a child.

    Your mind, your wishful thinking. As for the leaking breast, if it's very light & suttle, it's not so uncommon.

    well the milk from your breasts can be from your partner sucking them during sex but most likely its a hormonal imbalance

    what you are experiencing is a "phantom pregnancy".

    perhaps your homones are out of balance....

    maybe your contraceptives are causing this.
