I just remembered something from the 'old days' bc.
I went to a doctor about my acne - must have been about 25 yrs or so. I'd only taken the pill for a year when I was 22 and put on too much weight, lost the weight after going off it but acne and irregular periods remained. He said to me that I had two choices to fix the acne - fall pregnant or go on the pill. I couldn't fall pregnant because my hormones were out of wack...hence the acne. Found out in the last few years that it was just as well I got off the pill as I have a clotting disorder and the pill severely increases the chances of a clot. The doctor did no testing, nothing.
He was right though - pregnancy did fix the acne problem for me...whilst I was pregnant and a few months post partum.

I found going gluten free helped immensely. That and acupuncture

How long do you think the doctors will suggest I wait before they let me try metformin or clomid?

I'm only asking as my GP tried me on several different ones when I was around 15. Unfortunately, they didn't work for me - I actually ended up getting my period around 4 times over 6 weeks (1 week on, 3 days off, 1 week on, 2 days off, etc).
But other friends (SIL included) were lucky enough to find a brand that suited them. Being many moons ago now, I figure there's more out there, with better hormone levels.

MummaK - I think it's interesting about the gluten free. PCOS varies so differently between people that it may very well help some. I'd be interested to know whether it is the gluten part that is helping or the lower-gi diet due to not as many high carb breads, etc. I wonder if they've done any research into it - have you come across anything?
On a low-gi diet (which is also largely gluten free due to no breads, etc.) I do find that my skin is better but not what I'd expect of a chick my age.
