Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hyperprolactinemia can result due to Hyperprolactinoma. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. If you are worried, or if symptoms are persistent, or if there is problem getting pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
