After nearly 2 years of TTC, my OB sent me to a fertility specialist. My ultrasound looked normal and everything checked out in the lab with my husband. So we moved forward with CD 3 blood work. Everything came back normal except for prolactin, which was "slightly elevated." My doctor wanted me to fast and have it checked again, so I did. I got the results today and the prolactin was still elevated, this time even a little higher.
My doctor is now on vacation so I'm waiting to understand exactly what this will mean. I've done a little research and understand that a few different things can cause elevated prolactin, but I just don't have a grasp on what that might be doing to affect my fertility or what the reason might be behind it since there are so many possibilities, and my ultrasound was normal. I also still have to wait for CD21 to do my progesterone blood work.
Can anyone share their experiences with slightly elevated prolactin and what that meant for your fertility journey?
