... picked it up I found out how expensive it was, and I'm hoping Bromocriptine can be a good alternative. My concern is with future pregnancies. I've read that you shouldn't take it if you plan to get pregnant. And that it can reduce the effectiveness of the Birth control Pill. We want more children, but I don't want any pill to have any adverse effects on any potential fetus. Also the pill is my only option as I have a history of uteran tumors and I only have one ovary due to a large tumor. First are there any other alternatives? Two, if this is my only option, what is the real risk to my future children? Three, how long should I expect to take this? And do I have fend off my husband during the course of the treatment?
