cause of infertility

I am 34 yrs old and I have been trying to conceive for 3 months without success. I noticed that one of my nipples leaks water on stimulation and I don't secret ovulation mucus during ovulation. I also experience scanty periods. Can I use parlodel and ova care as recommended by a pharmacist. ## Hello, Angel! How are you? If you've only been trying for 3 months, that is not a sign of infertility. Infertility means you've been trying for over a year, with no results. Not everyone notices ovulation mucous and clear fluid from the nipple is most often caused by benign breast cysts, the fact that you see it after or during stimulation is also typical of breast cysts, as detailed by the NIH.

Interations of Parlodel with aminoacid

Hello Can I take, (at the same time) Parlodel with Same(adenosyl metheonine)? Thank you ## Hi Marizette, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Parlodel and S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe). So I can tell you that from what I've seen online, it seems like there shouldn't be any problems using the two together outside of the possibility of their own individual side effects occurring. Were both of these recommended to you by the same doctor?

parlodel

I did a hormone test and the result came out that my prolactin is very high ;47. But my problem is that my breast is not discharging any breast milk. I'm really confused because I don't know if that is really possible and my doc prescribed parlodel for me. Can someone help me here, is this really possible for my prolactin to be that high and still no discharge of breast milk. I need someone to talk to me pleassssss. ## Hello, Angel! How are you? Yes, it can be high, without your producing breast milk. That is just one possible symptom of it. The most common side effects of this medication may include nausea, headaches and vomiting. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks a lot for your advice, I'm very glad I have finally found a forum that cares.
