This is a retrospective study, conducted at Reproductive Health Care Centre, Khartoum. The study aimed to compare between bromocriptine and cabergoline medications for treatment of hyperprolactinema among infertile a menorrhic Sudanese Women. 105 women were selected for the study, 54 were treated with bromcriptine and 51 treated with cabergoline. The study continued for 22 weeks. Serum prolactin level was measured initially and after weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 18, 20, and 22. The efficacy of both treatments was assessed by normalization of serum prolactin level, menstrual cycle resumption, pregnancy achievement and side effects of both medications. The results showed that cabergoline is more effective compared to bromcriptine in terms of normalization of prolactin serum level, menstrual cycle resumption and pregnancy achievement. Both medications showed common side effects but to a lesser extent by cabergoline.
