Facial hair-Prolactinoma

I'm 28 yrs old and has very less facial hair. Underwent tests and revealed that I have a 3cm tumour in pituitary gland. I'm on Cabergoline 0.5 twice a week. Wanted to know whether the tumour is the reason for facial hair not growing and miss of secondary masculine behaviour. How much time will it take to show effects??
