What scale was the prolactin measured on? Mine was only slightly high (31 or 32.5 I think) but with cabergoline, got it down to a normal level and we were pregnant that next cycle (we’d been trying for 26 months and had done surgery and IUI+injectables for the 3rd time as well. It wasn’t just the cabergoline but I think it helped).  As far as the prolactin levels goes, I’d ask for a redraw and be super careful going in. Eating or drinking, sex or any other nipple stimulation etc can cause artificially high results. Google tips for prolactin draws and follow those. If it’s still high the second time, then my re prescribed meds. But it’s not uncommon to have it come back high the first time. You can do that any cycle day. 

As far as the pcos, I have it too but they never used fsh and lh to determine it. I had irregular periods, cysts on the ovaries (have they done an ultrasound yet?), difficulty losing weight and excess body hair on my face and that was all they needed. My fsh and lh weren’t measured for another 6 years after that. And they need to be done on cd3 to be accurate anyway. I’d go in on cd3 and get them redone, ask for an ultrasound if they haven’t done one and then talk to your doctor and see what he says. 

Hope that helps!
