Prolactin Blood Test in Panchkula

What is a Prolactin Test?

A prolactin lab test in Panchkula is conducted to evaluate the level of prolactin present in your blood. The hormone prolactin is synthesised by the pituitary gland. The hormone causes the breast to grow and produce milk during pregnancy and after giving delivery. Therefore, levels of prolactin are generally high in pregnant women and new mothers as well. Similarly, levels of prolactin are low in men and non-pregnant women.The main functions of prolactin hormone in the human body are:

  • An increase in the prolactin levels causes the mammary glands to enlarge and prepare for milk production.
  • It stimulates the mammary glands to produce milk. This process is known as lactation.
  • The hormone plays an essential role in determining maternal behaviour.
  • The increase in the levels of prolactin hormone causes a decrease in the levels of estrogen and testosterone hormone in females and males, respectively.
  • The hormone promotes the process of neurogenesis in maternal and fetal brains by facilitating the formation of the myelin coatings on axons.
  • Prolactin hormone also contributes to the development of immune tolerance in the fetus.
