AbstractSeminal plasma prolactin (PRL) levels were determined in 224 semen samples collected from fertile and suspected infertile men, and their relationships with spermatozoal characteristics and fertilizing capacity in vitro were evaluated. PRL concentrations were similar in normospermic and oligospermic samples, but were significantly lower in azoospermic samples. PRL concentrations were significantly higher in samples with high spermatozoal motility than in those with low spermatozoal motility. There were no significant differences in PRL concentrations between normal-morphology and abnormal-morphology samples, and between high-fertilizing capacity and low-fertilizing capacity samples. A low degree of positive correlation was observed between the PRL concentration and the spermatozoal motility. There were no significant correlations between the PRL levels, the other spermatozoal characteristics, and the spermatozoal fertilizing capacity in vitro. These findings indicate that the seminal plasma PRL levels are significantly depressed in azoospermic subjects and suggest that the seminal plasma PRL may play a role in the maintenance of spermatozoal motility. Whether there is a potential function of prolaction in semen on spermatozoal fertilizing capacity, however, cannot be inferred from the present study.
