  • Hyperprolactinemia Causes Primary and Secondary Infertility in Women of Iraqi Patients
  • In this study; a total of 150 hyperprolactinemic women their ages (20-50) years are collected from Kmal AlSamaraee
    hospital
    and 50
    for
    normal
    healthy
    women
    used
    as
    control.
    The
    patients
    were
    divided
    into
    two
    groups,

    those
    who
    suffer
    from
    primary
    infertility 
    and
    those
    who
    suffered
    from
    secondary
    infertility,
    then
    the 150
    patient

    groups
    were
    divided
    into
    three
    age
    groups
    (20-30),
    (31-40)
    and
    (41-50)
    years.
    Test
    of
    fertility
    hormones,
    which

    is
    (LH
    and
    FSH)was
    done
    for
    all
    patient
    groups
    to
    check
    the
    effect
    of
    high
    prolactin
    levels
    on
    the
    level
    of
    other

    hormones.
    It
    was
    found
    that
    there
    is
    a
    significant
    difference
    in
    all
    hormones
    concentrations
    (LH,FSH,PRL)
    for

    patients
    when
    compared
    with
    normal
    healthy
    groups
    hormones,
    according
    to
    type
    of
    fertility, 
    both
    in
    primary


    and
    secondary
    infertile  
    women.
    The
    results
    show
    that
    the
    prolactin
    levels
    in
    both
    infertile
    groups
    were
    higher
    than in normal, healthy, fertile women which lead to decrease the concentration of fertility hormones.   Also, it
    is obvious that the prolactin level in secondary infertile women higher than its level in the primary infertile
    patients. The results indicate that the higher prolactin levels were in the age group (31-40) years, than of the
    other two groups.
