High Prolactin Accompanied By Bleeding From The Birth Canal For 3 Months?
Hi Doctor. I’m fatihah from Malaysia. Want to ask, I have been married and regular period. After marriage, the period cycle is disrupted. Recently, my period is only 2-3 days. Fresh blood red. Lasts for 3 months. In addition, feel breast tenderness. Heavy and very sensitive with touch. Breastmilk discharged at my right breast (transparent color). Therefore, I met a doctor for details examination. Blood test, my prolactin (700 uIU / ml) a bit high for normal person but normal for pregnant. But, urine test showed -ve result for pregnant. Next month, I have another check up for blood tests and see my specialist. I want to ask, what do I need to do now? I feel wronged. Do I have pregnancy or do I have hyperprolactinemia?
