Prolactin

Had my annual yesterday. Spoke with the OB about my prolactin. She’s referred me to an endocrinologist. Prolactin is released when you’re pregnant for lactation. In non-pregnant people, it can be a cause of concern because it could indicate an issue with the pituitary gland, which is located in the brain. It sometimes means there’s a tumor (almost always benign) and it can affect eyesight and cause headaches, which I’ve been having. It also causes infertility. So, crossing my fingers. Really nervous.
