Natural way is best: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not FDA-approved drugs for treating particular disorders. Nobody knows for sure what happens if a person takes performance-enhancing supplements. So, it is best for all athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy nutritious foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements.

The most common causes are medications, tumors, and medical problems such as chest wall injury (stimulates prolactin secretion locally) or renal failure (decreases the clearance of prolactin.) whey is not known to increase prolactin. Your doctor should consider medication review, basic labs, and mri.

No, you can: You can get pregnant. Pco is a condition where you don't ovulate regularly, but with treatment you can conceive. See a doctor to be sure you really have polycystic ovary syndrome.

Depends: While having just visual changes and no elevation of blood pressure is not commonly seen with preeclampsia it can happen on occasion. Those patients may have other problems like rapid weight gain, headaches and abnormal kidney and liver functions preceeding the elevated BP and protein . The usual visual changes are lights or spot before eyes not floaters.
