Answer: yes it might be a case when you may have high level of prolactin before pregnancy and its normal . but in pregnancy is should be around 34 to 386 ng/mL. High levels of prolactin are normal during pregnancy and after childbirth during nursing. So relax and go through your lab test reports and check with doctor.

Answer: First trimester it should be less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5, During the second trimester 0.2-3.0 and in the Third trimester it must be 0.3-3.0.. Since it was on higher side earlier, you should take the medicine, but, discuss it once with your gynaecologist.. Avoid having cabbage, kale and broccoli completely.. Do some breathing exercises.. Take care of these things, your baby is safe don't worry..

Question: my prolactin level was high before my pregnancy. i didnt take any medication. now i am 5 weeks pregnant.. is it dangerous? plz help me out. am worried.
Answer:  Women who are not pregnant and are not breastfeeding should have low levels of prolactin. If a non-pregnant woman has abnormally high levels of prolactin, it may cause her difficulty in becoming pregnant. so in pregnancy if your prolactin levels are high it can cause hypothyroidism as it is pitutary gland hormone. there is no problem sometimes dear.. but seeking an advice from doctor is recommended. all the best
