Prolactin response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone in women with infertility and/or randomly elevated serum prolactin levels.

Infertile women with normal serum prolactin (PRL) levels have been known to establish a pregnancy after the use of bromocriptine, a dopamine agonist. These data imply that there may be a group of women with a slight but significant increase in PRL secretion that may have resulted in their infertility. This study evaluates the thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH)-induced PRL and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) response in normal women (NL, n = 6), women with anovulation and/or inphase endometrial biopsies (AN/IN, n = 12), and women with histologic evidence of luteal phase deficiency ( LPD, n = 12). Most of these women were found to have elevated serum PRL values on random testing. There was a statistically significant increase in PRL response at all time intervals after TRH between the NL and AN/IN groups compared with the group with LPD on the basis of repeated measures analysis (P = 0.0013). There was no statistical difference in the TSH response between these three groups. Although the PRL response was statistically different, individual PRL response patterns were not diagnostic. It appears from these data that there is an increased PRL secretion in infertile women who have histological evidence of a LPD.[1]
