About Female Hormones

Prolactin

Prolactin inhibits follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which allow eggs to develop and mature. It also stimulates milk production after childbirth. Hyperprolactinemia, meaning abnormally high levels of prolactin, can prevent a woman from conceiving.
