High prolactine affects erectile dysfunction ?

I am a male, 30 years old , height 180cm and weight 80kgr. I recenctly had an hormone testing and the hormone leves were the following: Testosterone 5.23, Free Testosterone 25, LH 4.02, FSH 2.96 and Prolactin 17.62 ng/ml. Do the high levels of prolactin cause the problem of erectile dysfunction which I have lately or the hormone levels are normal ?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The high levels of prolactin do contribute to erectile dysfunction. Rest of your hormone levels are within the normal range.You need to get yourself treated for prolactin . That will solve your problem. All the best for your treatment.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
As correctly stated by Dr Rakhi, raised prolactin levels may be cause of your ED. Prolactin levels may raised due to a number of causes & I think a repeat testing is needed. Please get yourself fully evaluated for a prolactinoma also. Consult an endocrinologist. Good luck.
