Welcome to e health forum.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a chronic anovulation syndrome. Sonographic findings alone are not specific, and the diagnosis is made on the combined clinical, biochemical and sonographic grounds. - hyperandrogenism (clinical or biochemical) and polycystic ovaries on imaging.

PCOS is radiologically diagnosed with presence of 25 or more follicles per ovary and increased ovarian size (>10 cc). peripheral location of follicles (string of pearl appearance) and each follicle measuring 2-9 mm would be added diagnostic criteria.

With your symptoms and current history, it is possible that you may be in the initial stages of Polycystic ovarian disorder.

Consult your doctor and undergo a hormone assay which might help to provide a clear idea about your status.

I hope this helps.

Doctor recommended me metformin (Glucophage 500 mg) for around 6 months. I'm scared that this medicine is for diabetic patients. My glucose sugar is 82, and I'm scared if Glucophage might give me diabetes?
