Do men also suffer from hyperprolactinemia?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/30/2018

Yes, although it's less common. In this case, a man is considered to have hyperprolactinemia when his blood prolactin hormone level is above 20 ng/ml.

The main clinical manifestations of hyperprolactinemia in men are erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, gynecomastia and infertility.
