Great Discussion of Hyperprolactinemia. However, it's not clear that GnRH plays a major role (if at all) in the stimulation of prolactin production. The majority of hypothalamic regulation comes from negative feedback of Dopamine as you discussed. The main interaction between GnRH and prolactin comes as inhibition of GnRH production by increased prolactin levels. 60 YEARS OF NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY The hypothalamo-prolactin axis David Grattan et https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4515538/
