Day 196 – Endo Appointment

Today I had an appointment with my endocrinologist. I had been taken off estrogen because my prolactin was elevated to 56 which is abnormally high and we needed to see if it was the estrogen causing it. Turns out the anti-psychotic I was put on when I went in the hospital is known to cause raised prolactin levels. I’ve since gone off said drug and my prolactin is now down to a safe 9. My psychiatrist also took me off the anti-depressants I was on and put me on 150mg Effexor. Because my prolactin is a safe level we decided to try going back on the estrogen to see if it stays stable. He put me back on 1mg of Estrace a day and he also upped my dose of Spironolactone to 200mg daily. Right now I am pretty satisfied with where I am. 🙂

    “Safe” Prolactin?!

    lol – I enjoyed lactating – I even bought a pump! It was weird realising I was doing something so feminine that not even all cis-gendered girls get to experience!
