Good day,
Noted your concern.
It is recommended to stop cholesterol pills like Crestor in pregnancy and Dostinex may be substituted with Bromocriptine in first three months of pregnancy. Why did you have high prolactin? Pituitary adenoma ??
It is not useful to check Prolactin in pregnancy, because it will be high due to pregnancy as well.
It is extremely difficult to comment on abortion etc through this forum. Better to take decision after examination and after meeting a doctor. You must meet your gynecologist and endocrinologist for an expert opinion.
