I went to see my gyn for yearly exam and mentioned to him about trying to conceive and bein given metformin from my primary care physician.  He drew blood to see if I in fact needed metformin and set mr up for followup.  When I teturned for followup iwas told everything was ok except for my prolactin level.  I had #55 he also took sonogram and shiwed me the pcos.  So now I have pcos and slightly high prolactin level.  I was given dostinex which I take 1/2 pill twice a week.  Ive only taken it one week so far.  Please give me success stoires on having pcos and high prolactin and acheiving pregnancy.

He gave me a 3 month supply and told me to come back in 3 months. My last cycle was the first week in march. I've been on e dostinex for 2 weeks now and just waiting on af to arrive. I've been trying for 16 yrs to get pregnant. 1 failed ivf and 2 failed fets ending in chemical pregnancies which may have been due to high prolactin level. I'm hoping and praying for a miracle. I'm just wondering if I should be taking dostinex and metformin since I have 2 issues.

I'm not sure about prolactin levels, but we've had lots of members have successful pregnancies with a PCOS diagnosis. Will you go back for further testing after being on the meds for a few weeks?
