Maternal serum prolactin (PRL) levels were evaluated in patients having contraction stress tests (CST) by nipple stimulation. Of 79 CSTs, 14 failed and 65 were successful. Poststimulation PRL levels in failed cases were significantly lower than those in gestational age-matched successful cases, despite longer duration of nipple stimulation in the failed cases.
