Here's my story...I'm kinda confused about what is really going on with my body... OBGYN that saw me from 1995-2004 said with my periods being so irregular & painful, facial hair, weight fluctuation, acne, border line hypoglycemic etc...I had symptoms of PCOS. Never had to do a lap or saw any cysts. I stopped using BC in 2002. I changed my eating habits no refined sugars or white flour breads and started walking everyday. After 18 months of trying, I successfully conceived on my own after following the diet for a few short months. After I had my son in 2004, my periods averaged every other month, some painful and heavy, some not. I've had 2 second trimester miscarriages since 2006. In April I had a chemical pregnancy and my cycle has been off the charts ever since...June-September I did not have a period. Took Provera in October to induce AF and it worked...November AF came on time then 2 weeks later AF started and hasn't left since!!! I called my OBGYN last Friday and she started me on another round of Provera to help it stop. I am so confused...I took it to help me start and now she's having me take it to stop... I had a light bulb go off in my head remembering my OBGYN with my son thought I had PCOS...so now I am more convinced that I do have PCOS and that is probably what has caused me to miscarry 3 times in a row...My doc that I am seeing now (whom I just love by the way) does not think I have PCOS at all and dismissed it immediately even though she's seen all my records for the past 10+ years. Her exact words "you are not overweight"!!! Even though she would like me to lose 30 pounds. So with all that being said...was there a process any of you went through to see if you had PCOS or just your symptoms indicate you have it...I would love to hear! I've had a sonogram in April and September...every blood test known to man...Does insurance cover reproductive endocrinologists? Should I look into it?
