Cabergoline and Prolactin


#1

Maybe I should start with my own reseach but I wanted to ask if anyone has had first hand experience with this product. I understand it controls prolactin and can be very useful if your levels increase due to HRT

So is it a good idea to have blood work done for prolactin levels. From what I have read so far it sounds like a very important hormone to keep an eye on.


#2

HRT/TRT does not increase prolactin. Most have no reason to be concerned.

Labs can suggest the presence of a prolactin producing adinoma as part of diagnosis.

Thank KS

So are you telling me that there is not a specific test for prolactin levels.


#4

Yes, you can test prolactin.

How did that change your life?

It depends on what problems you are experiencing. Excess prolactin can cause low testosterone and ED issues in the same way excess estradiol can.
