These doctors specialize in hormonal imbalances that affect fertility, menstruation, and sexual health.
  • Further testing: The doctor may order additional tests to confirm the abnormal prolactin levels and to identify any underlying conditions. For example, they may request an MRI to check for a pituitary tumor or a thyroid function test to rule out hypothyroidism.
