What causes milky discharge from breasts? - Online Doctor Chats
May I know your speciality
please proceed with your query
I am a General Physician
I believe my query is more directed for a Gynaecologist
I have not had my last 2 periods and am not pregnant. Been having some milky discharge also from breasts
I was reading on the net and it was mentioned somewhere that this happens when prolactin levels are high
that is right
Whats the cure for this?
We need to do further tests to confirm the same
your serum prolactin levels need to be checked
along with Serum FSH and LH levels
Okay. What can be the cause of this?
it can be due to high prolactin levels like you said
this can be because of a prolactinoma or prolactin secreting tumor
However, the most common cause would be PCOD
do you mean PCOS?
I have had PCOS for quite a few years but this issue of not having periods 2 continuous months in a row has not happened
but this is the common finding in PCOS
Perhaps you are experiencing it for the first time
Okay.. Usually its been an irregular cycle from 29-35 days variance
are you there?
Yes I am
do you have more queries?
No. Thanks for your time
I shall go and meet the Gynaec in person
wish you good health
let's end the chat now
Bye for now
