We are activly trying for a new baby and getting no where due to irregular periods. I dont have money for fertility drugs and am thinking I have pcos. My question is how do I tell my dr this is what I think I have if hes never said anything related to pcos before when I went in with the same symptoms as pcos?

All ins comps pay for fert. Testing...Not treatments. Just tell your dr you want to start fert. Testing and the best way to find out is to have a vaginal ultrasound. Thats how they comfirmed my pcos after having 3 reg. U's and a cat scan.

Diagnosis of Pcos And Endemetreosis
Hi there I know alot about this as I myself had the op on the 27th july this year, there is now a procedure to diagnose the above,its called a laparaoscopy, the procedure lasts about 45 mins start to finish they make 2 incisions one inside ur belly button and one by ur bikini line, they then fill u up with gas to seperate the organs so its easier for them to move the cam about, they then go in and have a look they can treat cysts and adheasions caused by edmetreosis with lasers, when u wake up u will have pain in ur shoulder for a few days this is the exsess gas they didnt remove(typical) but it is basically pain free I was out the same day,good news to ur doctor can refer you to the gynea department at ur hospital free of charge especially if u are suffering with pain,
go to ur doctor hun and good luck xxxx

Well, I had 3 children years before getting a diagnosis of pcos!! I was surprised when I got the diagnosis because we thought I had cushings. Your hormones tend to be "off" and having more testosterone. Weight gain around the middle portion of your body, abnormal hair growth, diabetes...These are some of the symptoms. Do a search on google and I am sure you will find out more about it. I take metformin for my diabetes as well as my pcos. Good luck!
