Haven't received official diagnosis yet, but I may have a pit. adenoma. My endocrinologist said my prolactin is extremely high and he can't understand why I don't lactate. My estrogen is almost non existant, and apparently I have free flowing testosterone. I think cortisol was fine. I have hirtuism because of all this and it is just getting worse. It's to the point that I have to shave my face everyday, same as a man does. The thickness, as well as dark color, make for an undeniable 5 o'clock shadow, too. Two years ago it wasn't nearly this bad; so what about 2 years from now? This is so humiliating. Meds didn't do anything to minimize the hair growth either. Is there ANYTHING that we keep me from literally turning into a "bearded lady"?
