I was diagnosed with a microprolactinoma about 2 years ago. My doctor has recommended that i take oral contraceptives, which have brought my prolactin level down to normal. When i am ready to conceive, he recommends treatment with bromocriptine and parlodel. Online, i have read that mostly everyone is started on an agent to decrease the prolactinoma. Is it normal to wait to begin treatment until a desired pregnancy?

  • you need to see your doc again, i too have this condition but i am taking cabergoline twice a week to bring my prolactin levels down. I have been advised by doc that these will be stopped once i'm pregnant. I'm not trying for a baby yet but I want my levels to be normal for when i do. Go see your doc you should be taking something to maintain your levels.

  • I've got the same condition and have been taking cabergoline for almost 2 years. Doc says I shouldn't take it anymore for fear that when I want to become pregnant (next couple of years) it would cause problems.I've been trying to find natural ways to control prolactin levels and keep seeing B6 as a possible way to lower prolactin. Has anyone else found a good source that supports this?
