    Hi ,
    ng/ml
    I have microadenoma and I am taking cabergoline medicine since 5 year but prolactin level is not getting low. It always between 40 to 100 .

    I am planning to go for IVF because already I completed 3 IUI cycle with negative result.

    Please let me know can I go for IVF at this prolatine level.

      Hi. After the fourth IVF cycle failed. The doctor checked my prolactin level to discover that it was high. I’m presently on meds preparing for another cycle. High prolactin can affect IVF success rate.

    Yes I have a high prolactin level reading at 102 and I’m doing ivf as well to conceive because I have scar tissue at my tubes, but now is my question in, how you can control the level of your prolactin and help it to be normal to conceive? They want my follicles to grow more bigger than where they at but they is measured at 13 and 12 on most of them is that good.

    Hi Im Winnie, on 2011 i was diagnosed with pituitary gland tumor with the prolactine reading nearly 3000 . I’ve started the bromocriptine since 2012 until 2014. And was prescribed to Cabergoline since 2014 till now since it is much more effective to suppressed my prolactine hormone. After 2years on meds, the prolactine was normalized.

    Even my prolactine was normalized, we are having difficulties to conceive. This had saddened my but im learning to accept the fate. We are opting for IVF this year end. I am hopeful that it gonna be fruitful.

    Hi

    I have just finished my second cycle of IVF-both failed due to male infertility. My questions is that I have had a pituitary tumour for over 10 years which is controlled by medication could this also be having an effect on our cycles? Before both cycles our clinics haven’t advised to do anything with regards to stopping or continuing medication, I have took it upon myself and have always stopped once starting stimulation! Any info would be appreciated! Thanks

      Hi Rebecca,
      Did you managed to find any answers to your question? I am experiencing a similar situation. I am now under my first IFV cycle. The doctor did not ask anything about my prolactin level or small pituitary tumor – although i just read my IVF medication prescriptions and it seems they are not recommended when a tumor is present. I am currently under Dostinex too…

      Hello. I have high prolactin levels and I was not on medication for my failed cycle but for my 2nd successful cycle I was taking medication to bring down prolactin right up to the positive pregnancy test. This was standard practice at my clinic – that high prolactin was not good for IVF

      Hi Cristina 🙂

      I spoke to both my GP doctor and my clinic doctor, my GP doesn’t really know much about my medication and IVF and has just advised me to do what it says on the information leaflet which is stop medication 4 weeks before planning a baby which is very vague but I suppose in our circumstance this is pretty straight forward as I am just going to count back roughly 4 weeks from egg collection. My clinic doctor isn’t concerned at all by the medication and said I could continue with them till I had received a positive pregnancy test although I am going to stick with the 4 weeks before just for peace of mind. Hope this helps my medication I am on is Caberogline, I hope the first round of IVF is being kind to you, wishing you all the best! X

    Hi,
    I have one fallopian tube closed (the left one). Can I do IUI, and what is the success rate?
    If my prolactin is high, can I do IUI or IVF or does it interfere with them? Thank you.

    • Many thanks for your question. Please contact us for a medical questionnaire. You can mention the prolactin issue on it. It is possible to have IVF with just one tube. Indeed, IVF bypasses the tubes by its very nature.
