Maybe I am just being dumb about this, but I am confused. So are we saying that low prolactin can cause issues with DHT and libido? I always thought it was high prolactin that was the problem.
Sorry if I am missing it, but I am missing it.

It really is ridiculous because a quick Google search now shows an equal amount of articles saying high prolactin causes low libido, low energy, and depression and the others equate this to low prolactin. Does anyone really have any idea?
edit- called into my doc about this because it is annoying. I asked his take and he told me just what we are finding. "Well, the information is starting to contradict itself through further studies. We can't just try to lower or raise prolactin without addressing everything around it. So, each situation is unique and that is why I don't want you just trying to mess with this stuff because it has a trickle down effect."

So maybe the answer is too keep it not to low and not to high....Just like with estrogen?. Seems people get the wrong idea with both of these. A supplement comes out that lowers estrogen and people go nuts thinking that you have to keep estrogen extremely low, because that's good right?(joke). Same thing with prolactin....So then people get all confused thinking that they must keep prolactin and estrogen extremely low....Just like the crazy people that see that their canned tuna has a little bit of soy in it and automatically think they are gonna grow boobies!. It's a bit ridiculous.

I'd agree, but all the studies are using people with normal ranges, just higher or lower in that range. So that kind of blows that idea- though I like where you were going with it.

Was it? I just wish someone would say if the idea of higher or lower is better for libido. Or is this essentially telling us that it could or could not be an issue depending on other factors, therefore not really saying much.

i think it is best to keep prolactin AND estrogen in range....if prolactin is normally within range occasssional recreational usage of prolactin lowering products will heighten libido in the short term, long term usage will after awhile start to have the opposite effect.
at least this is my take on the subject....
GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

Ok, that I get. That is kind of what I was taking away, but was hoping there was more that I wasn't reading correctly. In essence, this is one thing that is better to keep in mid range.

Extremes one way or the other = no bueno; or so it now seems.
I am interested in reading more regarding the belief that nervous system overexcitation might cause P.E and, possibly, full blown impotence.
I am in a very stressful professional environment lately (actually, the last 3 years, its been non-stop) and I feel burned out - overexcitement gone mad and for too long. Yes, I have noticed a quicker trigger, not to my liking.

Could be adrenal fatigue. I suspect that was what happened to me after being in my career for so long. I basically ride a fight or flight mode throughout 10-12 hours of my day.

I don't doubt that you are correct, but all of the endos I saw always mentioned it. They also mentioned that it is a general term that could involve other factors, so my takeaway was that it may not yet be proven.
Anyway, it was just a thought.
