Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. This hormone is responsible for the production of breast milk. In some cases, when breastfeeding is stopped, lactation can persist for several more years, which is not very good. Milk can also appear in nulliparous women and indicate an increased content of prolactin in the blood. Only a specialist can help solve this problem.

See an endocrinologist, gynecologist, mammologist, or even a therapist. Your doctor will give you a referral for a prolactin test. After receiving the results, it will be clear whether you need a course of therapy or not. The treatment prescribed by the doctor depends not only on the test results, but also on the disease that caused the increase in the hormone. Pituitary tumors, polycystic ovaries, amenorrhea, kidney disease and many other diseases can provoke excessive production of prolactin. More often, treatment is reduced to eliminating the disease, which helps to normalize the level of prolactin.
Prolactin is actively produced during stress periods. If you have nervous tension, insomnia, depression or other nervous disorders, be sure to inform your doctor about it. You need a course of treatment with sedatives. Take decoctions of medicinal herbs: motherwort, lemon balm, hawthorn, passion flower. Read the detailed recommendations on the herb packaging. If you cannot tolerate phytocomponents, your doctor will prescribe synthetic sedatives for you.
To normalize the hormonal background, St. John's wort, red root, boron uterus are suitable. But herbal treatment should be long-term, because the positive effect is observed no earlier than after 14 days. In some cases, the doctor prescribes hormonal drugs. Therapy is selected individually and may depend on many factors. Self-medication is completely inappropriate here.
Lead a healthy lifestyle. Pay close attention to the quality of your food. During the treatment period, it should be as varied as possible. Remember to exercise. If you follow the advice of your doctor and cooperate with the treatment, your prolactin levels will soon drop to normal levels.
