Re: Stage 1 OC - How were you diagnosed?

As long as you've had a clean pelvic ultrasound - and, except for the cysts, it sounds like you have - you needn't worry about ovarian ca as the cause of your symptoms.

Some of your sx (irregular/absent menses, digestive problems, inexplicable weight gain + polycystic ovaries) sound like an endocrine disorder called PCOS, although it mostly affects women who are heavier than you. If your GI doc says nothing's wrong and your ob-gyn says the same thing - consider asking about PCOS or for a referral to an endocrinologist.
