I have a Question,

I have a HYSTERECTOMY SURGERY in Sept. 2003. I kept my Ovaries. My GYN told me my ovearies are good so he is going to keep them. so i did. I am on HRT. since my hysterctomy i am growing lots of hair on my chin & upper lips.
i am getting acne & gaining weight in the middle.
My acne is not that bad. but my hair is getting worse. what type of test i need to ask my doctor for PCOS.

oh yes i have a thyroid problume too. i am hypo. that i find out after my hystercotomy.

Re: I have a Question,

Most doctors will do an ultrasound and/or bloodwork. My dr. did a fasting blood test to look at my hormone levels and she diagnosed me that way.
