Prolactin level increase by 10 to 20 times during pregnancy. After the baby is born, prolactin stays high if you are breastfeeding. It takes few months to get back to normal level.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Prolactin levels rise during pregnancy and even after it's still a women is like today so it take a couple of months and stay there unless a woman stop breastfeeding so don't worry if your prolactin levels are high and keep feeding you baby at least 2 years with your breast milk.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
