    high blood pressure and pcos?

    I haven't been officially diagnosed with pcos, but my doctor suspects from my blood tests and symptoms that I might have it and has referred me to an endocrinologist for more testing. (and unfortunately, my appt is not until next month, so I have more waiting until I get some answers)

    But one thing that concerned my doctor was my blood pressure which was pretty high. It was my first gyno exam and I was really stressed out, so I wasn't surprised that my bp was high, and neither was my doctor so she told me to come back another time and they would recheck it. They won't prescribe birth control pills unless it's lower. Well I went back twice this week to get it checked and both times, it was still high, like 140/80 It was lower than it had been the first time, but still high enough for them to be concerned.

    Does anyone else here have high bp with pcos?? I don't know what to do. I read that pcos can cause high bp...but I can't get on the pill to make my periods be regular again b/c of it
