Current Symptoms -
1. hard to maintain erection
2. Takes longer time to reach orgasm in sex
3. Feel like the amount of sperm is low when ejaculating
I went to urology, but nothing major issue has been found.
However, they suggested me to take CABERGOLINE 0.5mg twice a week
based on my blood test.
LH 9.4 High 1.7-.8.6 mIU/mL
FSH 14.6 High 1.5-12.4 mIU/mL
Prolactin 20.2 High 4.0-15.2 ng/mL
Testosterone 472 249-836 ng/dL
BTW, I have taken brain MRI. However, no tumor or issue has been found.
1. What could possibly cause high LH,FSH and Prolcatin?
2. Are these seriously/extremely high?
3. Can I have above symptoms because these high level of LH,FSH and Prolactin?
4. Do you think CABERGOLINE could really help me to fix my symptoms and hormone?
The normal LH & FSH values vary between 1-10 mIU/ml and normal testosterone level varies between 3-20 ng/ml. Hence these values are not particularly high. Since an adenoma has been ruled out with an MRI, this is likely to be a primary elevation or secondary to primary low testosterone levels. Cabergoline would oppose the effects of prolactin and may help with your symptoms. I would suggest consulting an endocrinologist for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
