Brief Answer:
Appropriate investigations should be done

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy, stress or hormonal imbalance like hypothyroidism or hyperprolactinemia.
You should get an ultrasound and blood beta hCG levels done to confirm whether any pregnancy is there or not.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

hi my sister is 22 years old and she was complaining from high prolactin levels and last time the doctor(gynecologist ) asked her to make MRI (MID OF THE SEIAlA TURCICA) and the result came as follows:
a 22 old female patient with hyperprolactinemia of 6 year duration associated with recent visual field defect no previous similar studies for comparison however the current study reveals a well defined focal lesion is noted at the left aspect of pituitary gland measuring 6 x6 mm in its craniocaudal x transverse diameter displaying delayed enhancement compared to the rest of adjacent normal galndour tissue especially noted in the dynamic phase and delayed postcontrast study with mild downward sagging of the sellar floor and minimal focal bulge of the glandular contour still central pitutary stalk with no signifiganct mass effect .
normal optic charisrnas
normal suprasellar and paraseller sturctures
complementary T2 of the brain is unremarkable .
N.B.
Prominant Nasopharyngeal lymphoid tissue.
Right maxillary antrum retention cyst.
Opinion :
the picture has keeping with pitutary microadenoma implicating the left aspect of adenohypopysis displaying size and imaging features as detailed above
so what you think about the report as the doctor said need surgery or there is any other option
