What you need to know:

  • Prolactin is the hormone that causes milk production and can interfere with your cycle.
  • This could be due to a problem with the pituitary gland in the brain causing prolactin overproduction.

For years, I have not been getting  menses unless I take everyday pills (femiplan). Once I stop, the menses disappear. Also, my breasts produce a milky substance when pressed. What could be the problem?
