Hormones and pressure form the implants could be causing the milk production.  It would be best to have an endocrine evaluation to be sure that this is all that it is.

In rare instances this may indicate that you may have a pituitary hormone producing tumor. You should have hormone levels drawn and evaluated by a specialist.

The hormones you are taking  may stimulate you to produce milk. You should get evaluated by your endocrinologist.
