    here is my update: my prolactin level was 1000.8 iu (normal range less than 550 iu) without fasting on nov. but after 2 months and taking b50 for almost 5 weeks and fasting it became 12ng/ml (i don't know the normal range but should be around 25ng/ml).:happydance:

    So you just took vitamins to help your levels? Did you have an MRI to see if your had the tumor on your pituitary gland?

    yeah,and actually i had very stressful sampling first time maybe that was the reason but in the last 15 years ago i had sometimes high and sometimes normal level.
    i will have mri tomorrow too and will post here as soon as i take the result. and we are going to check rest of infertility tests, so up to now we haven't try well and we haven't checked all factors.

    Not sure if anyone knows this but... An elevated prolactin level can come from not being on a gluten free diet if your are gluten intolerant.

    Many people do to know that they are gluten intolerant & an easy fix is gluten free diet. I was tested 2 weeks ago and had a prolactin level of 39. Two years ago I was told that I had gluten intolerant & basically just ignored it because I didn't want to give up certain foods. Then I saw Dr.Oz talk about celiac & gluten intolerance and one of the top five symptoms was infertility! Well I did some research & it is everywhere. Plus it talked about it is one of things that falls under unexplained fertility which is me.

    Just thought I would share something that a lot of people are not knowledgable & it is an easy thing to try.

    I was diagnosed with a 6mm prolactinoma in december, prolactin was 1800 obviously in a different measurement than yours, normal was 300 so I was put on parlodal 2.5 mg after three months, levels had dropped to 800, which was progress but not enough, so meds doubled . Have had first period in over a year so feel like I'm making some progress!
