I have PCOS. Your Dr should run some blood tests to measure your hormone levels. They may look for cysts on your ovaries via ultrasound, mine did not. You may benefit from taking Metformin. It's an "off label" drug often prescribed for PCOS and is made for diabtes. A lot of Dr's will put PCOS sufferers on the pill, but that does not eliminate the PCOS, just makes you have a period. Don't let anyone scare you, you can still have kids. I got pregnant with PCOS before any treatments. My 2nd pregnancy was after taking Metformin. Chaste tree berry extract is also helpful as it helps regulate the pituatary gland. That's what I am currently taking and so far, so good.
And visit soulcysters.com! It is my favorite place to go for anything PCOS related.
