Delayed period, discharge from breasts on squeezing, negative pregnancy test. Pregnancy signs?

Hello, My Wife is in another city on vacation and for the past few days she has been worried like anything. She has missed her periods by somewhat 20 days now. Firstly I thought she was pregnant, so I told her to get a test done right away. Till date she has undergone almost 10 Home Pregnancy Test with all of them being Negative and 1 Blood Test which has also proved Negative but still no periods. She is planning to go to see a doctor for an Ultrasound or something tomorrow but suddenly in the morning she messaged me that tiny drops of milk are coming out from both breasts upon squeezing them. I am really confused and need help. Thanks

Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
in my opinion most probably your wife has raised levels of a hormone known as prolactin.
this hormone has two effects on female body viz
- delayed or absence of periods and decrease in flow during periods
- milky discharge from breasts.
so ust get her ultrasonography and prolactin levels tested and then consult your gynecologist.
If in case levels are very high then she might need x-ray of head and neck region to see for any tumor in brain releasing that hormone.
In case you have further questions you can consult me on health care magic forum and i will be happy to help
Take care and wish you all the best.
Dr Manisha Jain.
