    Evening madam and am sorry about how u feel about youresult.There are many causes of irregular menses apart from infection,among them is hormonal imbalance which is likely what your sis has considering the test result,the result indicates that ur sis prolactin level is higher than normal range,this will account for the breast discharge,infertility and menstrual irregularity.Hormonal imbalance is one of the chief causes of infertility,and menstralual irregularities. To treat this irregularities means you treat the cause which will necessitate her seeing a gynaecologist to properly review,access her,prescribe her investigations and manage appropriately, take care
