Hallo Suzi
It can be caused by early pregnancy or increased prolactin hormone levels. If you are sure that you are not pregnant your doctor may need to draw blood to check your prolactin hormone levels and look for possible causes. Stress, certain medications,low thyroid hormone levels and enlargement of the pituitary gland can cause increased prolactin levels.
