Web page on Treatment of Prolactinoma has PCO links

There is a new web page on  Treatment of Prolactinomas.  A
prolactinoma is a type of pituitary tumor that causes increased
levels of the hormone prolactin.   If not treated this causes loss
of periods and infertility (usually temporary, reversed by
treatment) in the female due to the high prolactin switching off
the ovaries.  It may also be associated with a type of polycystic
ovarian disease where the natural estrogen is low instead of high.

If you are a patient with high prolactin you may wish to take a
look.  If you have a web page that covers infertility, pituitary
tumors,  or polycystic ovarian disease you may wish to add this
link to your page.
