Check pituitary MRI: Check pituitary MRI if prolactin level is high. Pituitary tumor producing prolactin (or other hormones) can reduce fsh & lh which is necessary to tell testes to produce testosterone. Check out http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/klinefelter_syndrome for info re klinefelt's or XXY which is typically associated w/high fsh & lh. So ask your physician to finish evaluation rather than leave you w/high prolact. ...Read more
