Pituitary adenoma

Hi all!
I wasn't sure where to post this.
My DH and I have a beautiful 1 year old DD, and we're not TTC yet, but thinking about the end of summer. I recently switched insurance and saw my new doctor. I haven't had AF since giving birth and I've been done breastfeeding for 5 months. I had a prolactin level checked and it was elevated. Well, I'm not she had me get a brain MRI. They found a benign tumor on my pituitary gland (a Pituitary microadeoma). This is over secreting prolactin, hence the elevated levels. This can cause infertility, so she referred me to a reproductive endocrinologist, and I guess it may be able to be treated with medication.
I'm wondering if anyone has this or gone through this before? What is your experience?
