TTC after 35

Fasting for prolactin/progesterone??

I am also doing some testing on August 8. Day 21 progesterone as well as prolactin. My doctor also mentioned checking my thyroid levels too. Did anyone have this done and if so, did you need to fast?

  • I have high prolactin levels so I've had this test several times.  I always have to fast the night before no eating after 9pm, no sex the night before and then usually have my testing first thing the next morning.

    Good Luck!
