After not menstruating for 7 months (and not being pregnant) my GP took some blood tests and apparently my prolactin level is through the roof. This explains my lack of periods and there is a chance it is caused by a growth on the pituitary gland. She reassured me that this would be benign, but I am going for an MRI scan on 25th April to see if that is what is causing it.

It can also be caused by domperidone which I take for my gastroparesis.

Anyone else had this experience or symptoms?

I am seeing an endo on 2nd April to see if they can shed any light on things.
