Quoting Krystal M Guzman:" Honeslty I have no idea if I do. my gyno has never said anything and I havnt been to a specialist. Is it something they would see on a regular exam"
They determined I had it by me having facial hair (not much but enough to see), having trouble losing weight, and because I had one cyst on my right ovary (which was removed August 20th). They usually will do hormone checks because women with PCOS has elevated levels at times. Mine were all normal. They put me on metformin to kick start ovulation and help me lose weight. I think it did the opposite. Since starting it I think it made me stop ovulating. So I really think I'm getting off of it and see what happens. If I don't ovulate after this cycle then I can assume it wasn't the metformin. They also do an ultrasound to check ovaries. How long did it take you to get a positive opk? The reason I ask is cuz you labled the post Finally!
