One question frequently asked me is “can I conceive with high prolactin levels?”
Here is my answer.
If you’re trying to conceive for many years with high prolactin and low progesterone levels, you may not get pregnant naturally.
What it simply means is this.
Getting pregnancy with high prolactin levels is very difficult.
It also implies that if you can reduce your prolactin levels, the chances of getting pregnant improves substantially.
If you can understand what is causing high levels of prolactin in your blood, then it becomes easy for you to deal with this problem effectively.
Here are some of the causes of high prolactin levels:
- Tumor in pituitary gland produces excess levels of prolactin.
- Your dietary and lifestyle may be disturbing your hormonal balance.
- Drugs prescribed for psychiatric and digestive problems also cause higher prolactin levels.
- Inadequate thyroid production is also attributed to this condition.
- PCOS can cause high prolactin levels
Normal prolactin levels to get pregnant:
The normal values for prolactin in non-pregnant females are 2 to 29 ng/mL. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.
If you notice a problem with your periods or ovulation, you need to test your prolactin levels. The test is a simple blood test that takes few minutes. The test is done during your menstrual cycle. It won’t take much time to get the results.
High prolactin levels are a roadblock for your conception. So you must take steps to lower your high prolactin levels. Here is my four-step system that helps you reduce your prolactin levels.
Four step system to reduce high prolactin:
Each of these four steps is designed to correct all the systems in your body and that is how you can create the right conditions in your body. So, fertility happens on its own.
Pay close attention here:
If you focus on one treatment, you are addressing only one part of the problem but not the whole of the problem.
You, therefore, must focus on four methods shown in the above diagram for its effectiveness. And this is the correct way of influencing the entire hormonal system of your body.
Let us dive into 4 step process:
Step 1: Use Hormone Balancing Supplements
Certain Supplements are prone to help to balance hormonal system. Here are the couple of tips;
Eat Zinc Supplement Rich Foods
Eat whole grain flour, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, carrots, brown rice, soybeans, spinach, cheese, lentils, shrimp, and chicken. These foods are rich in zinc supplement help in correcting your hormonal system.
Step 2: Cleanse Your Body
Your body contains lots of toxins and chemicals. These toxins and chemicals enter into your body through the foods you eat.
Eating fiber-rich organic foods and fruits cleanse your body naturally. So replace foods made of white flour, sugar with fiber- rich vegetables and fruits.
Since the aim of this article is not about cleansing I am stopping here about cleansing. However, I promise that I write a dedicated article on cleansing your body shortly.

Step 3: Lifestyle Changes
What do I mean by lifestyle changes?
Lifestyle changes include the food you eat and the thoughts you think. So! What you eat, drink and think matters in your fight against infertility.
Here I explain this point with an analogy for better understanding…
If you put a seed in the sand, it will not grow and whereas you put the same seed in a nutritious soil it grows into a plant naturally.
In other words, if you don’t create suitable condition you can’t expect fertility naturally.
Here, you have to understand the natural law of “soil determines the seed”. A farmer who understands this natural law will take care of his soil and feel no anxiety about his crop as he created a suitable condition for seeds to grow into plants.
I hope you understand the point I am making. Now let us come to our problem in question.
The diet you eat determines how your hormonal system functions, how ovulation takes place…………..
You, therefore, take whole foods along with fruits and vegetables especially leafy greens.
Also, include in your diet legumes nuts and seeds.
You are essentially nourishing your body with nutritious foods…
At the same time, stop eating packaged and preserve foods as they contain high levels of chemicals and toxins.
I have told you what you think also matters…
Obviously, your mind influences the body and body influence the mind. So take steps like visiting your close friends often, spending time in nature so on and so forth…
Step 4: Stress Relief Measures
As I have discussed stress is one of the factors for higher prolactin and various other health complications.
Here are the couple of tips for reducing the stress
1. Practice Meditation: Meditation calms your mind and brings positivity in your life. Living positively means you are setting conditions for a healthy body. Take a look at the following video;
2. Practice Yoga: while a meditation impacts your mind the practice of yoga has an impact on your body as well as your mind. 10 to 15 minutes of a simple yoga practice can give you much needed results in your life. Take a look at the following video and practice the yoga on regular basis.
So we come to an end of four step process to deal with higher prolactin levels.
Here you have to remember that these four steps influence one another and give you a holistic and healthy life. It means you are creating a perfect condition in which fertility happens on its own.
