User avatar Dear Happy,

There are medications that are given to lower prolactin levels in the blood.

Once prolactin levels are lower then normal hormonal balance should be resumed and ovulation should resume, then you should be able to get pregnant with fairly reasonable chances.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
