Practin High but Regular Periods

renee rogers - June 17

My prolactin is high and I have been unable to become pregnant for over a year. I'm 39 (yeeks!). It seems that I'm ovulating, but very late and my LP is only 9-10 days. I just took my first dostinex and am looking for a cycle body to e-mail with? Anybody interested?

Hi. I also had a high prolactin of 28. My Dr. wanted me to take some perscription for the high prolactin but I didn't want the bad side effects - that's when i found progesterone cream. My LP was 12 days and I've tried Vitex for a while and now Ovulex for 3 mo. It has changed my LP to13 or 14 days. I just ordered FertilTea, it has vitex and raspberry both really great for LP or so I read. we've been ttc for 2 1/2 yrs. Tell me about the dostinex, I tried to find something about it on web but no real luck. How long do you take it and how high is your prolactin??

Hi!! My prolactin was 35 or so. I just started Prolactin on Wednesday (first pill). You take 1/2 pill twice weekly. Wow, 12 days seems like a good LP .. mine is averaging 9-10. I thought 12 was good??? Are you having regular periods? I am and I have biphasic temp charts so I was wondering after a year of trying why - so I guess my last shot is the Dostinex - I'm 39 ............ I only had slight side affects from the one pill so far, but I will update you. It is a very expensive medication!!! Talk to you soon!

Renee, did you have very tender breast due to the high prolactin? Mine were unbelievably tender. This month I ran out of the progesterone cream and all the symtoms were back (very painful breast, angry PMS, bad cramps). I'll never run out of prog cream again. I hope this works for you. Keep me posted.

Yes my breasts were very tender. I had regular periods though and I was ovulating but very late. My daughter is 4 and she always want to play rough with me - ends up kicking my boob -and OUUUUUUCHHHHHHH! Were you having periods? Were your breasts "leaking"?
