Hello doctor,

I have PCOS, and my recent report says that prolactin level is 42, what does it mean? Otherwise, my period is normal.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The serum prolactin levels are high, which indicate hyperprolactinemia. This can cause hypomenorrhoea or shortened menses even though the cycles may be regular. The PCOD (polycystic ovarian syndrome) element further adds to insulin resistance and putting on weight. The aim of the treatment should be the PCOD regimen and Dopamine agonists like Cabergoline tablet to control and treat both PCOD and hyperprolactinemia, respectively.

The classical sign of hyperprolactinemia is the discharge of watery substance from breast nipples, also known as galactorrhea. This often leads to breast heaviness and tenderness.
