Will taking Bromocriptine be safe for prolactin levels and pituitary glands?

I am currently taking bromocriptine for high prolactin levels and pituitary gland about 8mm. I have noticed a smell coming from my vagina which started a few months before I had it confirmed that my hormone levels were not right etc. is it all linked? I have had tests and swabs and all came back normal but am really concerned about the smell. I hope it s hormone related?

Smell from vagina is not related to high prolactin. They are due to infections. Even though the swabs and culture tests came normal it is better to take an empirical course of antibiotics and antifungals.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
