something new to worry about...

two years ago my ob/gyn detected i had elevated prolactin levels. i had to take a mri of my pituitary gland in my brain because she said i could possibly have a tumor. the mri showed no tumor (thank the Lord), so she put me on meds, and i was to follow up with her. i never followed up with her. fast forward to now, i looked it up, and elevated prolactins cause infertility! so now i am freaking out (even though we have ttc for like three months only) and am worried about what lies ahead. she said my elevated levels could have been just a one time thing but now i dont know. i am going to look for a new ob/gyn (i found one after her but i'm not feeling her either). ugh... wish me luck. i just want a baby!

if its not one thing its another eh, how are these people getting pregnant!? WM, im sure youre fine, but the title of your post says it all! Once you see the doc she'll ease your fears im sure, seems like our paths are so parallel, weve bee ttc for 3 months and i feel like all weve really done is uncover road blocks!

Mare I am sorry that you are going through this...I feel like it is kinda irresponsible of the doctor to not have mentioned the problems that can arrise with this. Sending you lots of hugs...maybe this will be your month!

thanks guys! you're right, if its not one thing its another. its really sad actually. all this time i was so excited to get on the ttc bandwagon but now i'm terrified of it! and to think i wanted six babies (enough to fill a Suburban) and now i just want at least one little bug! :( i will let you know how it turns out. thanks girls for your words!
