Hello. I am brand new to this forum and I am hoping that some of my questions can be answered. I really don't know if I have PCOS for sure. I just went to my annual Ob/Gyn appointment today and I went to a new Dr. My last annual/pap was in the summer of '07. My results were normal. I was LONG overdue, for no other reason, but I finally went today. Anyway, just visiting with the Dr. I noted that my periods were usually between 34-38 days apart but this last time they were 50 days apart. She began to ask basic screening questions for PCOS. (Hair/whiskers on face, etc). I do get a sporadic whisker or wild hair on my chin but nothing too out of the ordinary. I am hispanic, so I do wax but I've been doing that for years. Oh, I just don't know! Anyway, she ordered several labs. She is wanting to test my Prolactin, my SHBG levels, my TSH levels, a DHEA Sulfate test and a glucose tolerance and insulin test. She also ordered a test for me to have on the 3rd day of my menstrual cycle (my LH and FSH levels). I don't have any male-pattern baldness or hair on chest/back. I guess I am a candidate for PCOS, but just not sure. It is important to note that in October of 2007 my then, Ob/Gyn ran a panel and tested my hormones and thyroid and everything came back in the normal range. I was also about 31lbs lighter. I have gained a significant amount of weight in the past 2 years. Has anyone else gone through this. Is there anything/advise you can give me. I am really nervous. My husband and I do not have any children but hope to in the future. I am 34 years old though so I know I can't wait forever. I just want to get all these issues taken care of. Thank you.
