Hi, Thanks for the query. To confirm menopause, get your FSH, LH levels done. If they are elevated indicates menopause. If not then you need further testing for cause of absent periods like hypothyroidism, ovarian cysts, increased prolactin etc. Hope this was helpful. Thanks for using HCM.Dr Madhuri Bagde, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologist
pls Doc what is the meaning of prolactin?
Prolactin is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland in the brain. It is the hormone that causes milk production in the breast. Both men and women have the hormone. If there is a tumor in the pituitary gland, the blood levels of this hormone can be elevated. This can be treated. Hope this answers your query. If you have further questions, I would be happy to answer them.
does discontinuation of depo cause high prolactin
discontinued depo is not related much with prolactinlevels
first we need to check with pituitary abnormality there is a condition called micro adenoma which can cause raised prolactinlevels
so I suggest you to check with MRI to rule out pituitary involvement
Hope I am able to answer your query
reply with thanx
