NO THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. PROLACTIN USUALLY INCREASES IN PATIENTS HAVING HYPOTHYROIDISM. GET A THYROID PROFILE DONE. IF PROLACTIN IS HIGH IT USUALLY INTERFERES WITH PREGNANCY. PROLACTIN CAN BE BROUGHT DOWN BY MEDICATIONS. CONSULT A GOOD FERTILITY EXPERT

yes high serum prolactin levels does interfere with conception. These levels need to be controlled so you should consult gyne for medication. Also get ultrasound pelvis done and thyroid profile done.
