• Hyperprolactinemia is a disorder of the endocrine system that causes the body to produce higher
levels of prolactin than normal.
• Symptoms of hyperprolactinemia in women are: irregular menstrual cycle, production of breast milk in
absence of pregnancy, irregular nipple discharge, increased risk of miscarriage, headache, increased
body and face hair and other.
• Hyperprolactinemia can be physiological (pregnancy, lactation, stress), idiopathic (in 40% of cases) or
pathological causes by hypothalamic-pituitary stalk damage, pituitary hypersecretion, systematic
disorders or drug-induced hypersecretion.
• Acupuncture as part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats hormonal imbalances very often.
• Acupuncture can regulate and rapidly normalize the prolactin levels, improve the blood circulation and
promote ovulation.
