Abstract:

Secretion of prolactine hormone is dependant upon intact adrenal gland due to the stimulatory action of glucocorticoids. Strees leads to marked increase I n serum prolactine level which is markedly reduced after adrenalectomy revealing the importance of glucocorticoids as a stimulatory hormone for prolactine secretion, another point of great importance is that increased prolactine secretion release may contribute to menstrual irrigularites as 9Ligomenorrhea, amenon-hea and luteal phase defect.
