Suffering from no periods
Hi, I am mother of 3 year old daughter. I had bleeding for 20 days after delivery. I have not got periods after that. I have a history of high prolactin for which I took medications before my pregnancy. Is this a case of early menopause?

You might need a thorough evaluation for this amenorrhea but high level of prolactin can lead to anovulation and hence amenorrhea or absence of periods . Please consult online for better guidance
