    Didn't have a period for a year, had a 6 mm pituitary tumor, and my prolactin levels were elevated to around 100. Within 1 month after starting a very small dose of cabergoline, my prolactin levels went down to 12, and I started ovulating. The only side effect I can notice is feeling a little groggy the morning after taking the pill. It's been great!

    Comment:
    After over 2 years of infertility treatments, my new doctor did an MRI and found I had a pituitary tumor (microadenoma). Many people don't realize that increased prolactin levels can cause you not to ovulate, and therefore, you can't get pregnant. I was misdiagnosed as having polycystic ovarian syndrome for 8 years. I didn't have increased milk production, so this was never considered ... Show Full Comment
