It is nice to hear from somebody else in my boat.
I am not on any other medication so this cannot be the problem.
However my levels were 500 and the cut off was 450 for normal (doc said some labs have different levels from others depends on the test they use)
That is why I have been asked to do a repeat test in a couple of months.
I used Ov sticks for the first time this month and I actually got a +ve and I do get the symptoms of Ov cm etc my only problem seems to be the 1 day AF.
I am going to keep the levels monitored with blood tests.
In a way I am hoping they say it is not normal as then at least I can have some meds!
I don't have leaky boobs, but probably as my levels are not quite in the very high range, just in the slightly high range.
I have read on a lot of forums about women conceiving after being treated for this. Try typing in High Prolactin and TTC in Yahoo it comes up with some good ones and very promising - it hasn't stopped me worrying though!!! Lol.
Do you know what the reason is for your high levels?
Doc said if mine come back high again he will send me for a scan (MRI I think)
I asked the doc if this would be affecting TTC and he said no! Just keep trying. As I had only been trying for 6 months when I went to the docs I said the problem was short AF so I think he was concentrating on this rather than the TTC bit - it is so frustrating though.
Good luck - I hope you get you BFP soonx
