    I wrote a while ago about testing I was having done because of abnormal menstruation, etc.

    Well, I met with the Dr today and she said it is PCOS.

    Apparently The FSH is supposed to be three times that of the LH. My LH was 5.6 and my FSH was 7 so that pointed to PCOS.

    I also have a 3.5 mm cyst on my ovary and thin endometrial lining.

    I also have Insulin resistance so it all fits with PCOS.

    Dr started me on Yasmin to see if it helps at all. That's as far as I've gotten for treatment so far.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Glucophage (metformin) is usually given for the insulin resistance. Are you on it? If you are overweight, it usually helps with that too.
