Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As she had a withdrawal bleed, so chances of pregnancy are minimal. The lactation could be due to high prolactin levels due to hyperprolactinemia which needs to be investigated with serum prolactin levels. However, the best way to rule out pregnancy if you are still anxious is to get a serum beta hCG test done. If the hCG levels are less than 5 mIU then she is surely not pregnant. The lactation is not a sign of pregnancy. This cycle, the menses can be delayed as she is suffering from typhoid, so stay apprised.
