Bromocriptine or Cabergoline for Infertility
How Well It Works
Among women who have ovulation problems due to excess prolactin, 70 to 90 out of 100 will begin having menstrual periods on a regular cycle and 50 to 75 out of 100 will begin ovulating normally while taking these medicines.Reference 1
Ovulation rates do not reflect the fact that well-timed intercourse is necessary to conceive, and some pregnancies miscarry. In any group of women, ovulation rates are higher than pregnancy rates, which are higher than live birth rates.
