My friend had all the symptoms of PCOS but when she got tested she was told that she had high levels of prolactin. she was checked for Lactotroph adenomas and she was told that's what she had not PCOS. their symptoms can be similar, except in Lactotroph adenomas you tend to have high levels of prolactin and in some cases your breast start producing milk. Ask your dr about it because if thats what you have, you need to take medication to manage it. all the best
