My prl is 343 ng/ml. Would this indicate prolactinoma? May i still get pregnant w/ medical treatment? Whats the chances of successful pregnant in future?
I was diagnosed w/ prolactinoma ~6 months ago and I have been on cabergoline 1 mo. I am not using contraception, is it possible for me to get pregnant?
Yes: A woman with a prolactinoma can become pregnant. There are medications such as bromocriptine and Cabergoline that will lower the prolactin level so that patients can become pregnant. This needs to be coordinated carefully with the help of an ob/gyn physician and an endocrinologist.

If necessary, bromocriptine can be used during pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
