Hi. Do you get any milky discharge from breast as well. If yes and if MRI normal, then it will be fully cured with treatment.We usually use Cabergoline for this. At the same time, Get thyroid profile as well, as hypothyroidism and hyper prolactinemia go hand in hand and with treatment no problem in pregnancy. After your prolactin levels come to normal, antithyroid drug will continue in pregnancy also with monitoring of levels.
Thanks.
