Whether the results shown in the figure, support the fact that changes in prolactin level over a 24-hour period are related to the sleep–wake cycle. Introduction: The mammary gland in humans is known as the breast and under the influence of milk-producing hormone, it produces milk. The prolactin is the main hormone involved in the production of the milk. Prolactin hormone is released by the anterior lobe of pituitary gland. Other hormones that influence lactation are human placental lactogen, estrogen, prolactin, progesterone, oxytocin, follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin, growth hormone, as well as adrenocorticotropic hormone.
