    Which daily habits that you consider estrogenic go unnoticed?

    I am trying to keep my estrogen lower by paying more attention to things that I do on a daily basis that could have an estrogenic effect. Two examples I can share: - Using toilet paper for cleaning the buttocks as well as blowing the nose. - Washing the skin with soap excessively. These...

    Is there any possibility that high prolactin in blood mean low estrogen in tissues?

    There are arguments that explain that certain estrogenic high values in blood would mean low levels in tissues: Estradiol and estrone are two that come to mind. Is there any possibility that a high result for prolactin in blood means low estrogen in tissues, or is high prolactin ALWAYS related...

    I'm desperate, prolactin is out of control despite taking anti-prolactin substances

    I've been dealing with high prolactin for the last 6 months and the result I got from yesterday is terrifying. 28.2 ng/mL (reference range 4.0-15.2). This is a jump from 16.3 from a month and half ago! I can provide more info about other results, but they are all in range. My TSH is suppressed...

    Have you ever tested macroprolactin, and at what time should prolactin be tested?

    Both my endocrinologist and urologist recommended I test macroprolactin, which according to them could be making the prolactin results artificially high. The urologist also recommended I test prolactin at noon to rule out high results due to fasting or being early in the morning. Has anyone...

    Struggling with high ACTH results, am I taking supplements too late in the day?

    I had the highest result of ACTH this week, with 99.1 pg/mL, at 8 in the morning. The reference range for tests in the AM is 7.2-63.3 pg/mL. One of the things I'm evaluating is my consumption of supplements and thyroid towards bed time. Could it be that taking stimulating things before bed...

    Which marker would you optimize for spermatogenesis: Prolactin, or Testosterone?

    I have azoospermia (no sperm in the ejaculate), and I have high prolactin, lower than optimal testosterone, and high pituitary hormones such as ACTH. I've been looking into ways to help my body produce more sperm, but there seems to always be a trade-off. My experiment with Exemestane made my...

    Took Lisuride for 4 weeks and it didn't lower my prolactin

    I used Idealabs Lisuride topically for 4 weeks, 4 to 5 drops daily (100 to 150mg), and it didn't lower my prolactin. Before using Lisuride I tested 20 ng/mL, and after four weeks of Lisuride, it only went down to 19 ng/mL. What am I doing wrong with Lisuride? I apply it topically to my...

    Scared of using Exemestane again, it raised my prolactin and LH/FSH too much

    About 5 months ago I used 8mg of exemestane (Xtane brand) daily for a bit more than three weeks. I had a varicocele, and wanted to try exemestane to help with male fertility issues. Exemestane was clearly effective at raising total testosterone: from 400 to 756 in 3 weeks. However, it double...

    Simultaneous blockade of (NMDA and AMPA) results in stressor-specific inhibition of prolactin and corticotropin release

    Many neurons express simultaneously two or more isotypes of glutamate receptors, so that pharmacological modulation of more than one receptor may be necessary to reveal the role of glutamate in mediating physiological processes. The present studies were aimed at evaluating involvement of...

    What's the best supplement to lower Prolactin?

    Preface: I've noticed that, from what I've read, prolactin is the one of the only "bad" hormones that can be lowered by a large amount without any negative consequences. For instance, estrogen and cortisol can cause some bad effects when they are too low, but low prolactin sounds amazing from...

    Is TSH supposed to be higher or lower during pregnancy?

    I have heard according to Peat that tsh should be less than 1. Tsh was 2.3 at 13 weeks pregnant and was 1.8 while not pregnant.

    Stress ups cortisol/estrogen/prolactin, drops DHT, causes male infertility and prostate issues

    If you try to discuss infertility with a fertility/reproductive specialist or an endocrinologist, and mention that chronic stress may be a factor in infertility, you will probably get laughed out of the room. This is not just speculation. This exact same thing happened to several friends and...

    Progesterone, Progesterone Receptors and Prolactin
