HORMONES

Prolactin is a hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland and plays a role in reproductive health. Its primary purpose is to stimulate milk production after childbirth, and in pregnant and breastfeeding women prolactin levels can soar.

Raised levels in a woman who isn’t pregnant or breastfeeding can signal fertility problems as well as irregular periods.

Raised levels in men can cause reduced sex drive, lack of energy, erectile disfunction and fertility problems.
