Prolactinoma and Birth Control Pills

There is no evidence suggesting a link between prolactinoma and birth control pills. In addition, patients with prolactinomas can undergo estrogen replacement therapy after menopause.

Prolactinoma and Birth Control Pills: A Summary

At one time, birth control pills were thought to contribute to the development of prolactinomas; however, this is no longer thought to be true. Patients with prolactinomas who are treated with bromocriptine or cabergoline may also take oral contraceptives.
 
Similarly, post-menopausal estrogen replacement therapy is safe for patients during prolactinoma treatment with medicines or following surgery.
