Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I'm experiencing 8 pregnancy symptoms including, but not limited to, having missed two periods now. A couple weeks ago I discovered I could extract a dark liquid from my nipples upon squeezing them, one side darker then the other, which I've never extracted anything from my nipples unless I was pregnant or breast feeding so that's odd. The confusing part about this is that I've been on Metoclopramide now for a little over 4 months and, though I experienced no side effects the first 2 months I was on it, 4 of the symptoms I'm having can be side effects from the medicine OR pregnancy. I guess this medication can cause you to miss a period, experience nipple discharge, cause unusual excessive tiredness, & frequent urination, all of which are pregnancy symptoms. If I am pregnant I would be a couple of days into my third month. It's so likely that I'm pregnant, yet, I keep testing negative on pee tests. This is beyond frustrating.
