I am a 20 year old male and i have never used any hormonal substances. I excercise daily (whether lifting of playing bball) and lead a relatively clean lifestyle. Recently, I went to the doctor for my yearly physical and complained excessive fatigue and somewhat of a low libido. He ordered a blood test to check prolactin, test, and free test. My prolactin levels were a little high (17.5 on a normal range of 1.0-13) and my total test was 420 on a normal range of 250-900. Free test was 13 and was toward the low end of the normal scale. I was told by his office that they will be making me an appointment with an endo.
My question is would lowering my prolactin level have a positive effect on my total and free testosterone? I want to avoid any type of HRT until it becomes a last resort but these symptoms are really starting to effect my life and my relationships. Thanks for your input.

When it comes to supplementation, doctors don't know everything (my opinion), but in this case.. I'm going to strongly advise you listen to your physician!

Examine nutrients imbalances and also neurotransmitters may help as well as possible pituitary scan to rule out abnormalities

it could. the hormone balance is a very touchy thing. its more important to figure out why the prolactin is high
