High levels of prolactin and low estradiol

dreaminofamiracle - December 31

Hi all,

My husband and I have been TTC our first child for a while. We did end up PG after 22 months, having it end in a severe complication-- overenlarged omphalocele.. at 13 weeks.. and after 4 medical opinions, we had to terminate... we were devastated. We are moving on, cautiously and nervous.

My OB did a cd21 bloodwork, because I dont think I am ovulating-- something is going on with either me or DH.

In CD21 b/w, it was found that my Prolactin is High and Estradiol levels are low... no idea of what #'s they were.

I have read that both combined may be that it is early menopause.. so scared we will not be able to conceive on our own...

Has anyone had this? I have read both can inhibit ovulation/ovulatory issues. Looking for some advice, very scared...

Going to new OB on Thursday.... old OB very very stuck in the 1970's medically.

Any help is welcome, thanks in advance,. So glad I found this board.

Prolactin is not related to menopause, but if the level is high, it can interfere with ovarian function. You need to be evaluated by a Reproductive Endocrinologist. He/she is subspecialty trained to deal with this kind of issue.
Good luck.
