Dear Thato

You have been seen by your doctor and he has done a blood test and if the blood test confirms that you are not pregnant then unfortunately we have to believe the blood test and you must now accept that there is no pregnancy. The fact that you have fluid coming out of the breast means you are more likely to have a high Prolactin level and this is the reason why the doctor has given you Dostinex. A high prolactin level definitely influences ovulation and it may inhibit ovulation taking place and therefore I suggest that you use the Dostinex to help stop the fluid coming out of the breast and therefore aid in ovulation. I do not think you need to be scared to take those tablets it certainly seems indicated.
