Does anyone else have this? What have you been told about treatment, effect on fertility, wars to reduce it etc? Day 2 bloods have shown elevated levels so I'd be interested to hear other people's experiences. Also have you conceived before with it? I've had a baby but I've not idea what my levels were then
I know this is late, but I hope I can still help- I have had diagnosed elevated prolactin levels for 8 years. It depends on how high your levels are, as to whether it will affect your fertility. If it's just "elevated," but in the normal range, you're probably in the clear. If it's abnormal, it can cause anovulatory cycles, of delay ovulation, like when breastfeeding.
I've been told there isn't really anything you can do to bring them down. However, I was able to conceive naturally (but that ended in miscarriage, which was not related to the prolactin), and on Clomid. I got my rainbow with Clomid + IUI.
Thanks. I do seem to be ovulating on my own but I suspect low progesterone. My temps have dipped right down today and I'm only 6dpo so hopefully they can give me something. Feeling pretty down about it tbh today
Hi! Nothing happened basically and I conceived naturally. I took b complex to lengthen my lp and got a couple of extra days but I didn't do loads TBH. I was having acupuncture too which could have helped but pretty sure it stayed high as my boobs haven't stopped hurting yet! Stress can cause high prolactin so as hard as it is try to relax!
