    Unhappy PCOS Out Of Nowhere?????? HELP!

    ok, iam 31 yrs old. at age 19 and 21 i had 2 children naturally. at 29, i was with my new husband, and we wanted a baby but it wasn't happening, and i was growing impatient, so we went to a top RE, who did every test under the sun, except a lap, cause no reason to ever think i needed that, my blood work perfect, and i have had more u/s's in my life then anyone i know, they were all totally normal, that is until last month. (btw- had a baby first round of clomid iui, have been shown at least at the time to ovulate every month, just produced more eggs with the med)

    on cd10 of last month i got an u/s, cause of increasing painful periods since the birth of my daughter 14 mo ago, and i sort of pressed for it, and the tech said there were some cysts on my ovary (can't remember if she said ovary or plural), anyway she said everything looks beatiful, it's just my ovary or ovaries looked a bit polycystic, but said nothing more. ok, my dr. said the word PCOS, but nothing to worry about, it's nothing, it's super mild, but he didn't do any further tests, and he didn;t exlplain anything really to me, and i just don't get it.

    i don't have facial hair, iam more underweight then anything, i am 31 yrs old, i can lose weight quickly, i have no acne, my period was 8 days late this month which was soooo rare, i thought i was def. pregnant, and was excited till af showed yesterday, because we are ttc again, and so i don't want B/C. iam usually 32 day cycle regular, i never miss a month, as far as opks, and CP tec, i ovulate every month, and i did get a blood test that showed i ovulated this past month, so i don't understand the PCOS thing. how can i just be diagnosed with this at my age, and after having so many tests, and having kids already, is this something, that can 'pop up' overnight?

    iam seeing an RE on wed. because i don't agree with the diagnosis, however iam very scared, cause for some reason, even when nothing was ever shown wrong with me or dh, we just didn't fall preggo naturally. i was wondering why my dr would say, knoing i want more kids, nothing to worry about, when it seems quite serious.

    help please...isn't there more bloodwork tests, or other physical tests i could have to confirm or rule this out, and has anyone else here just popped up with pcos after a lifetime of regularity, and normal u/s, and blood work? iam so confused here!

    thanks, sherry

    Re: PCOS Out Of Nowhere?????? HELP!

    Sounds like you may have polycystic ovaries, but not polycystic ovary syndrome ("pcos"). These are 2 different things. Polycystic ovaries is really just one symptom of pcos. Just because you have that one symptom, does not mean you have the actual syndrome. Diagnosis would be determined by blood tests - in particular - testosterone, fsh and lh, and perhaps fasting insulin levels. The name of pcos is misleading since ovarian cysts are not the hallmark of the condition, and many endocrinolgists now call it an excess androgen disorder rather than simply pcos. I actually have the syndrome based on blood tests but have never had cysts that I'm aware of. HOpe this helps and good luck to you!

    i think you are right, cause yesterday i saw a RE specialist, and he is 99.9% certain i don't have pcos. he did an u/s, and this time, there was no cysts to be found, and iam waiting on my blood test results. i had to push him to do them, that is how secure he is. on the other hand, i do have painful heavy periods, though regular, and he's about 80% sure i have endo, which is what i was thinking. i don't really want a lap cause it sounds painful, and the scares to (sorry to sound vain), he says it can just come back likely anyway, then what? so we shall see, it's eigther deal with the pain or get a lap, but he doesn't think my blood tests will show pcos. i think my obgyn jumped the gun there. hugs
