Prolactin, cortisol and stress
by: Linda

When you have low levels of prolactin, this alone should not be a major reason for why you don't get pregnant. Other hormones like progesterone and estrogen levels should be measured.

Also, too much stress should be avoided. Are you ovulating or not is vital and your overhall health condition are major factors to why you may not be getting pregnant.

Women will have low levels of prolactin and very high levels of progesterone during pregnancy. After birth, the opposite occurs because it is the natural time to breastfeed the baby - prolactin levels will go up while progesterone goes down, because the hormone called prolactin stimulates milk production.

When you experience stress, anxiety or work an excessive number of hours, your adrenal glands will release cortisol into the body. When cortisol floods your system repeatedly, you will feel more energized, stimulated and more able to carry on your work duties. However, too much cortisol will also make you feel more irritable, give you temporary increased energy levels plus feelings of anger and rage.

Overworking your adrenal glands and producing too much cortisol will bring you major illnesses and chronic fatigue in the long run. Excessive levels of cortisol will also flood your cells with glucose, giving you a sugar rush that will last for 20 to 30 minutes. When your body gets used to this glucose rush, you will be eating a lot more sweets and not so healthy snacks for extra energy.

When sugar floods your blood stream, adrenaline will also be released and available which will stimulate the creation of cortisol - this will cause food cravings like eating ice cream, other sweets, candy bars and many other snacks which can lead to weight gain or perhaps obesity.

Another hormone that gets set free when you experience stress is called prolactin. This hormone is responsible for the encouragement of the breasts to produce milk. When you have high levels of prolactin, it is very likely that your progesterone levels will be low - and this may mean that you may have trouble getting pregnant.

Elevated prolactin levels can also be caused by hypothyroidism - this means low thyroid or underactive thyroid. Certain antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs can also give you high levels of prolactin.

To use natural progesterone supplementation is recommended because progesterone will stop the deliverance of prolactin by your pituitary. It is also important that you control your stress levels...so you can control your cortisol or your prolactin. Stress needs to be under control for you to regain your balance and your health.

I hope this information helps!
