Prolactin (Females Only)
Women who are not pregnant will normally have low prolactin levels in their blood. This is because it’s primary function is to stimulate the production of breast milk. But high levels of prolactin in non-pregnant women could be caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), prolactinoma, or hypothyroidism. High levels of prolactin can also be a sign of infertility.
All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.
