Hi lexla! Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but you are not alone here.
Depending on your other symptoms you might not be put on any meds. If you are trying to conceive you might be put on a couple of drugs, if you are insulin resistant you might be put on metformin like I have been, you could also be put on a birth control that's different from what you are taking now. It all depends on your unique situation and what your plans for childbearing are.
Let us know! Take care!
