How can one treat the situation of water coming out of the breast? should it be an issue of hormonal imbalance? such as the progesterone, prolaction?

Some women do notice a

Some women do notice a discharge from their nipples. It is normal and healthy — it's the body's way of keeping the nipple ducts open. It even happens to some guys.

The discharge may look like very thin milk, or it may be clear or light green, greyish or light yellow. Women who take birth control pills may have this discharge. It can happen during sexual arousal and at certain times in the menstrual cycle.

It is important to keep nipples clean by washing with warm water and soap so the discharge won't dry and build up. If the discharge changes, has pus or blood in it, or if it is brownish in color, visit your health care provider — this change may be a symptom of an infection.
A key question is whether the discharge is spontaneous, or whether it occurs only when the nipple is squeezed. It is less of a concern if the discharge occurs only when the nipple is squeezed, since most women can elicit discharge if they squeeze their nipple. If it just flows on its own, go see your ob/gyn immediately.

My breast have been sore for

My breast have been sore for almost two months now, i am not pregnant, when i squeeze them water comes out so much that you could swear i was pregant, i am really worried as only the right breast is sore. could i be sick?

I suggest that you take

I suggest that you take Bromocriptine (Parlodel). My wife is currently experiencing this and she is still on it. Though you need to continue until you are pregnant (if you desire to be pregnant). This is all with the assumption that the discharge is light coloured milky discharge from the nipples. Any other pus or green coloured discharge, please go see a gyn/ob.
