In brief: Interesting question

Nocturnal secretion of melatonin has been shown to affect secretion of prolactin.
To my knowledge melatonin can exacerbate mild hyperprolactinemia. The relationship between Progesterone and prolactin i think is more unclear. We know thatprogesterone can affect prolactin in various ways. I'm curious to know in what context you would like to know the answer to this question?
