Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.If you are having white milk like secretion from breasts, b etter to check for serum prolactin levels once.Increased serum prolactin levels can lead to menstrual irregularities, tender breasts and milk secretion in non pregnant women.Regarding perimenopausal symptoms, menstrual irregularities, mood swings, breast tenderness, tiredness etc can be seen in perimenopausal period due to hormonal fluctuation.Taking gonadal hormonal treatment, multivitamins, calcium, regularizing daily activities, exercise, healthy diet, good sleep, avoiding alcohol and smoking etc, can help in relieving the symptoms.Take care.
