lr0901 :  I don’t have that problem personnally, but my DH does (high prolactin levels). He is going for a brain MRI next week to check for a prolactinoma on his pituary gland. He got tested for prolactin as part of our initial testing with the RE. He has no symptoms other than male factor infertility and is a bit overweight. Are you doing the MRI before meeting with the endocrinologist? That’s what he was told to do.

I have high prolactin but no known cause. I think that can happen so don’t assume you’ll have a prolactinoma (I don’t, and also no thyroid issues). I’m on cabergoline but supposed to stop if/when I get pregnant. I can’t say what’s changed though because I have so many variables going on with my cycle that I can’t tie anything to anything in particular. I will say I still have spotting before my period and a shortish LP so if that was caused by prolactin impacting my progesterone it wasn’t fixed. My RE seems unconcerned tho.

I had high probation levels back in 2015 before I got pregnant with my son. I have PCOS and we discovered the elevated proactive during routine diagnostic bloodwork.  My RE sent me for an MRI and it came back clean. Never did figure out what cause the elevation. We will be TTC again soon and I’ll be interested to see if my levels have gone back to normal since weaning my son. 

 

I definitely had a low sex drive, to the point where my husband would get annoyed that I never initiated anything.
