Question: Hello! I have been having infertility issues for 10 months now. I have this milky discharge from my breast anytime I press to observe it. I have used bromocriptine but it had too much adverse effect on me so I had to discontinue. Is there any alternative treatment for this condition?
Doctors Response: Milky breast discharge in an individual when she is not breastfeeding is called galactorrhea and when it is due to excessive secretion of prolactin in the anterior pituitary gland of the brain is called hyperprolactinaemia. It is important to know that apart from hyperprolactinaemia other causes of galactorrhea include mere touching the breast sexually, sleep, exercise, stress, drugs amongst others. I will advise you check your prolactin level to confirm that the galactorrhea you have is coming from excessive prolactin. Bromocriptine is a common drug used to treat hyperprolactinaemia however it has a lot of side effects such as dry mouth, drowsiness, dyskinesia, dystonia and arrhythmia . There is an alternative to Bromocriptine with milder side effects and easy compliance . Consult on the site to get the prescription.
