Is it possible to have an adenoma/prolactinoma and have normal periods?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Menses

It is possible but very unusual and normally related to how high the level of prolactin is in the blood, the higher the level the more likely the cycle will be interrupted.

In brief: Yes

If the prolactin level is only a little elevated, a woman can have regular periods.
A woman might or might not be ovulating with each cycle, and so might or might not not be able to become pregnant. However, a woman with a prolactinoma should use a reliable birth control method if she does not wish to become pregnant.
