    Good morning madam.Have you spoken with your IVF doctors about this. When whitish water is coming out and the hormone called prolactin is high, this is a known cause of infertility. This can be treated by drugs in some cases and in other cases where it's due to a pituitary tumour. However infertility may also be due to a combined factor of both partners. its really hard to say the whitish discharge is the only cause of infertility especially as you've gone as far as IVf. Some couples are perfectly normal medically and still can't achieve pregnancy. so its likely in your case your prolactin is not the cause. Please speak with your IVf gynaecologist. And ask for the cause of the discharge.
