Prolactin is a protein hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which is located just under the brain. It is an important hormone for both men and women, and pregnant women have high levels of this hormone due to its ability to stimulate the production of breast milk. High levels in women who are not pregnant and in men can sometimes indicate an issue, and low levels in men can cause a low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
A prolactin test may be recommended if you are a woman over 18 and experiencing symptoms such as irregular or no periods, breast tenderness, menopausal symptoms and breast milk discharge when not pregnant or breastfeeding. It may also be for men over 18 experiencing breast tenderness or enlargement, low sex drive and/or erection difficulties.
