Quoting I♥MyJackOlantern:" Im going in soon for PCOS testing, did you call ahead and tell them you would like to discuss it or just ... [snip!] ... and hadn't heard of it before... what should I expect testing wise? I already have factor V lieden so Im afraid of having both."
Mine got brought up to me when I went in for my pre-surgery u/s for the cyst on my ovary. The doc said I more than likely have it because of the cyst, some facial hair, and my hair gets oily fast or it just may be I'm using the wrong shampoo and conditioner. I also have trouble losing weight. I got put on the metformin to help me lose weight and I ended up not ovulating from it. I had all my hormone levels checked and they all came back normal even the testosterone levels which they say causes the excess facial hair. So what they will probably do is your hormone levels. They may do an u/s to see if you have any cysts or anything to help them make a better diagnosis.
