I have been diagnosed with a pituitary tumor. I have been put on cabergoline and bromocriptine. Currently I am taking bromocriptine, and it has significantly dropped my prolactin levels. I'm finally feeling better then I have felt since I've been diagnosed.
Unfortunately it messed up alot of things with my body , especially my period. I haven't had a period in over 5 years before I was diagnosed. They tried putting me on birth control , and it didn't work. Next they had me take progesterone and I got my period once and then never again, so they switched me back to birth control. After taking the birth control , I had spotting for about 3-4 days, and never got my period again, and it's almost been 3 years since I was treated. So all together haven't had a period in almost 8 years. All my doctors seem to just keep tossing me around to my gyno, to my endocrinologist, then back to my primary Dr. for answers , but no one can give me a reason as to why I haven't constantly had my period back . Keep in mind I am 25 right now , so I'm pretty young and feel like this should be of concern , but I don't feel like any of my Dr feel as it is.
Please help any suggestions , or if you're going through something similar , and aren't getting results either , just anything will help.
Thank you ,
