Hiya, I had a late period and when it finally came it's been going on for two weeks.
JA: The Obstetrician-Gynaecologist can help. To begin, apologies for the personal questions, but are you using any contraceptives? When did your last period begin?
Customer: I am using no contraceptives, my period began on 25th May.
JA: Thanks for that. OK, more personal questions coming up I'm afraid - when was your last smear test, and what were the results? Any swelling, discolouration, or unusual smells?
Customer: I have never had a smear test, I am 23. Noticed there were a few clots, and sometimes the period was a dark red
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Obstetrician-Gynaecologist should know?
Customer: I have prolactinoma, and I am currently 122kg.
What was your last prolactin level? Have you done a pregnancy test?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Previous results - Prolactin 889 LH 8.5 FSH 2.2 FT4 12.9 TSH 1.95 US ovaries – No polycystic ovaries

This was in December 2018 though.

I haven't had sex in about 6 months, so I don't think it's that either.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've also had eye floaters on a few days.
you do not have any recent blood work. I’m assuming the bleeding is due to the elevated prolactin and nothing to be worried about. Taking a low dose birth control pill could help.

The last time I did general blood work was in December

Are the prolactic levels I sent normal?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can the delayed period also be due to the fact that I'm quarantining at home?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've never had a two week period before.
Its not because you are quarantining at home. And no , prolactin is high
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are there any ways to reduce prolactin levels?
you can take a medication called bromocriptine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I will look into that. Thank you!
