High prolactin?

Hi all- I had suspected I had high prolactin and was recently tested. It did come back elevated, at 29.3. Normal is less than 20, according to my lab. Anyone deal with this? My current RE says not to treat it since it's only mildly elevated, and could raise my FSH if treated. My gut says I should give it a chance. I also have galactorrhea, which means the elevated prolactin is causing me to still lactate 3 years after I stopped nursing!

Looking for people who have been through this, and any success stories or advice!

I have no experience, but I remember my RE saying that would be an "easy fix" if that came back high in my testing, and def causes infertility. So I was hoping for mine to come back high so I'd be in the easy fix category!

High prolactin is easily fixed with medications. I have had for years. I also think there is a supplement you can take which does the same thing to the meds....think it's black cohosh.
