    Question Does this sound like PCOS?

    Does this sound like I have PCOS:

    I have no insulin resistance (Insulin level of 5, normal below 17)
    I have normal glucose (Level of 88, normal between 65-105)
    I have very light, soft body hair on my stomach and breasts
    Normal TSH and Prolactin
    Lost 10 lbs since off the pill so I am 5'4'' 126lbs
    Mild acne (had it while on the pill and before)
    Normal ovaries (not enlarged)
    No natural period since stopping the pill (in August)
    Provera induced period on Nov.21 (less than 1 day after last pill)
    LH 8.8
    FSH 3.9
    Total Testosterone 67 (lab range 20-76 is normal)
    (Taken at some random point in the cycle)

    The nurse practitioner said that it is definately not PCOS but an OBGYN said that it could be. I am getting a second opinion. Does anyone know if this sounds like PCOS????? I am very scared. Thanks.

    There is still a chance of it being PCOS. With me all butone test came back normal. My DHEA level was way above normal for a woman my age. Make sure they test your DHEA level because that can be effected by PCOS.
    Secondly the only physical sings I had were hair loss(head),weight gain,and hair growth(male patterns-facial,hands,fingers,toes and so on).

    Try getting in to see an Endocrinologist,they are better trained at dxing PCOS and treating it than regular gynos.
