For thyroid doctor has advised me to take thyroxine sodium tablets (50mg). I am taking the same for last 3 months. For PCOS, I have stopped taking medicines, due to very severe side effects. I have consulted dietitian for a PCOS diet and joined gym to reduce weight, as suggested by doctor. Now I have reduced some weight.
my normal periods are of 45 days. Initially i have gone to doctor as i do not got periods for last 75 days. But now again my periods are back to normal i,e, 45 days.
Now should i stop taking thyroid medicine or I have to take it for life long. What step should I take as precaution for PCOS. kindly advice.

Hi I was wondering how you were diagnosed to have pcos? Just by hormone levels? My FSH and LH are around the same as your. I have had three periods since sept 4th. What are the symptoms?
