Obviously I do not know all of the issue contributing to your impaired fertility, but the pro;actin is certainly 1 of them. Yes, get the MRI. Until proven otherwise, a prolactin as high as 1600 ng/ml is a "tmor" until proven oterwise. The good news is that these "tomors" are best treated with medication - not surgery.
Good luck.
