Background: Hyperprolactinemia is a common problem which is encountered in reproductive disorder. Hyperprolactinemia is usually associated with menstrual and ovulatory disorders like amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, anovulation, ovulatory cycle with short or inadequate luteal phase and galactorrhea. Hypothyroidism may also cause failure to ovulation in women of reproductive age group. This study has been conducted to correlate prolactin and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels in primary and… Expand
Evaluation of Hormones and Trace Elements in Women with Unexplained Infertility
It is concluded that is Prolactin, TSH and LH hormone are not associated statistically with unexplained female infertility and the increase in Cu and iron may have an important etiological role in the pathogenicity of unexplained infertility. Expand
Role Of Prolactin And B-Hcg In Female Infertility
It is concluded that Hyperprolactinemia is a major contributing hormonal factor in infertility among infertile women and, as such, prolactin and hCG should be measured in infertiles women. Expand

Biochemical association of hyperprolactinemia with hypothyroidism in infertile women.
A high incidence of hyperprolactinemia was found in infertile women and a positive correlation was found betweenhyperprolACTinemia and hypothyroidism. Expand
Prevalence of hyperprolactinaemia and hypothyroidism in primary and secondary infertility women
Prolactin secretion is controlled by hypothalamus which secretes prolactin inhibiting factor. Thyroid releasing factor (TRF), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) have positive effect on prolactinExpand
Hyperprolactinaemia and its comparision with hypothyroidism in primary infertile women.
The incidence of hypothyroidism in the hyperprolactinaemic subjects in the study population was found to be highly significant than the normal controls, and there is a greater propensity for thyroid disorders in infertile women than in the fertile ones. Expand
Sixty percent of women had primary infertility and 40% had secondary infertility; anovulatory/oligo-ovulatory cycles were detected and Galactorrhea was present in 9% of the women. Expand
Pituitary gonadotropic hormones in women with oligo/amenorrhoea.
Hormonal essays are mandatory in the evaluation of women presenting with Oligomenorhea/amenorrhea and chronic anovulatory infertility for finding out the cause and explaining the prognosis of the disease to the patient. Expand
Thyroid disorders in infertile women.
The results of the present study indicate that endometriosis, increases the relative risk for associated thyroid autoimmunity to 2.3, and therefore screening for thyroid auto-antibodies could be systematically proposed in these women. Expand
Correlation of Prolactin and Thyroid Hormone Concentration with Menstrual Patterns in Infertile Women
There is a greater propensity for thyroid disorder in infertile women than the fertile ones and there is a higher prevalence of hyperprolactinemia ininfertile patients. Expand
Thyroid and infertility.
A systematic screening of TSH, free T4 and TPO-Ab could be considered in all women with a female cause of infertility, showing a significant increased risk of miscarriage in women with positive anti-TPO Abs compared to women without thyroid auto-immunity after clinical pregnancy is established by the ART procedure.

Thyroid disease and female reproduction
It is advisable to measure thyroid function and detect AITD in infertile women before ART, and to follow‐up these parameters after COH and during pregnancy when A ITD was initially present, as well as to treat women with thyroid dysfunction at early gestation stages with l‐thyroxine to avoid pregnancy complications.

Initial evaluation and management of infertility by the primary care physician.
The female partner usually presents initially for an infertilty problem, often in the context of an annual well-women examination, and the primary care physician can initiate the diagnostic evaluation and can treat some causes of infertility. Expand
