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?
