Marginal elevation of prolactin is not of much concern. High prolactin levels usually cause anovulation. Oral contraceptives do elevate the prolactin levels and in view of this feature, it is better if you practise some other way of contraception that suits you after consulting your gynecologist. After excluding the reasons, hyperprolactinemia can be treated with ease and conception is attained. Therefore, your chances of conceiving are good. Take care.
