Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Prolactin level 22.4 is still considered normal in non pregnant women. In case of pituitary problem, your prolactin level would have been much higher.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
