    Gemima, do you mean that you never had any cysts but always had "follicles" ? I think they say 12+ follicles in an ovary is PCO (to varying degrees.)

    I have never been told I have cysts, rather follicles - and I believe essentially they're the same thing really - cyst just seems to be used more often when it's large as opposed to the slightly larger immature eggs or follicles? Women without PCO can get large cysts too.

    I didn't realize you could have pcos without more follicles than the 'norm' either ?
    I guess what I'm saying is that perhaps you always had excessive 'follicles' but only now have an ovarian cyst?
    I honestly don't have a clue. I'm just telling you what I've been told. I've never been told that I have more follicles than normal either. I know that my androgen levels are much higher than normal, I have insulin resistance and my progesterone levels are low. Apparently all related to PCOS. I'm not sure how it all works to be honest.

    I'm not even sure either! The diagnoses for PCOS seems outdated if you ask me, because although its a syndrome (differing symptoms for all etc.) everyone's seems to be so different!
    I have polycystic ovaries on ultrasound, irregular periods and that's about it! My hormones (androgen wise) are upper range but technically still normal, i apparently dont have insulin resistance, etc. so who knows!

    My hormones are alway borderline and never "too bad" but obviously that's enough to ensure I never ovulate on my own.

    Like I posted before I was told I was borderline by a specialist, I have none of the symptoms of PCOS except for irregular periods and I believe this is due to me having being on the Depo injection for 8 years I think it's a very vague diagnosis and one that they tell you to guide you in to having other treatments which will make them money.

    I don't know about that... My bloods are always borderline and I got referred to a public gynae so I don't pay for things.

    Default TTC No 1 with PCOS chat #7

    I went to my doctor today and she has asked me to get some bloods done and ultrasound she will then refer me to a fertility specialist so I can hopefully be prescribed with clomid..

    She said I could try the pill first to regulate my periods but my periods are pretty regular and they come every month the only unusual thing is it goes for 33 days.. She then suggested prescribing some metaformin but I was concerned as my blood sugar levels are always around 4/3 and I get very faint regularly when it drops to 3 so was scared the metaformin would further drop my blood sugar levels has anyone had this issue?

    Anyway looking forward to have my bloods done and ultrasound as I haven't had anything checked since I was diagnosed 3 to 4 years ago...

    I'd skip the pill. That advice is out dated.

    DH has booked our first appointment with Primary IVF for later this month.
    Has anyone gone through them before? Can anyone shed some light on what I should expect?
    I was hoping it wouldn't come to this and, to be honest, I'm a little nervous.
