I went to an endocrinologist a couple weeks ago. I went because I have had oligomenorrhea since the very first time started my "cycle." Other symptoms include; hursutism, excessively sweat, and difficulty controlling my weight. Now, this was the first time this doctor has ever seen me and he talked to me for about 10 minutes about my symptoms and history. It kind of made me wonder if this is a proper diagnosis. He hadn't done any testing. He prescribed me metphormin and gave me a script for blood work to be done at the lab. I'm afraid to take the medication because it is for insulin resistance. What if I don't have the problem? Can the medication harm me? Should I be regularly testing my sugar levels? Why is this doctor so quick to make a diagnosis? I dunno. I haven't taken the meds, and it's been two weeks since I picked them up at the drug store. I haven't had time to get the blood work done either. I'll make sure I do tomorrow, so he won't wonder why it's taking so long to get the results.
