Pelvic pain

I have been suffering from pelvic pain for the last 5 years. I had an uss done around 3 years ago which showed a cyst on my left ovary and then another scan done last year which showed multiple cysts. I was originally told i had polycystic ovaries and was referred to see a specialist. The specialist has said they do not think I have polycystic ovaries as i don't have any symptoms, such as overweight, excess hair, acne etc. They have checked my hormone levels which were apparantley normal.
Now I am confused my GP has done swabs numerous times, pregnancy tests all negative. They have suggested medication for IBS which I have also tried numerous times in the past with no help! I am constantly in pain in my pelvic area, nausea, bloated. My periods are irregular can range between 28-65 days. Has anyone else suffered anything like this or can suggest anything?

hi there
i was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries when i was 20, docs dont seem to want to  diagnose it nowdays...  my daughter who is now 24 is also having trouble being diagnosed, she also has multible cysts,constant pain,shes being trying to get pregnant for two years and she also has hair on her chin but her hormone levels always come back normal, yet thats exactly how i was before i was diagnose, i remember the doctor telling me at the time that the hormone they check for pcos changes from hour to hour,
it might be worth while asking your gp if you could try a course of metformin its a diabetic drug, but is also used to treat pcos,
although i was diagnosed 20 odd years ago they didnt give me any medication but 10 years later when i found out i had diabetes they gave me metformin and within weeks i started to have regular monthly periods so i know it works, its always worth asking.
hope this helps
