After a year of TTC and no success, I went to see a fertility doc who tested my blood. Prolactin levels were at 63 then 77 a week later. Started taking Cabergoline .5 mg once a week and tested after 4 weeks. Levels went down to 50, but still over normal range. Dosage was upped to 1 mg once a week. After 3-4 weeks of this dosage, I conceived and am now 7 weeks pregnant! Success! Am now off of it bc ... Show Full Comment
