    worried about having pcos

    smarty12 posted:
    hello
    i am 28 years old .i am married and have two kids .of age 5 and 3 .I was having hair loss for last 6 to 7 months and doctor send me for some blood tests including thyroid , insulin ,b12 ,and lh/fsh
    .i was having my periods 4 or 5 days delayed every month from the past 1 year.but that pattern of periods became a routine and i expected my periods to be late a couple of days later than the last menstruation date every month.
    My all other test results came normal except lh/fsh. The worrying thing is my ratio of lh/fsh. My fsh level is 6.7 and lh level is 16.8.Doctor said that it might be the case of pcos.
    my overall health is good and i am in healthy weight and i am not over weight.what do you think of this ratio of lh/fsh? is it a high ratio and what should i do ?and does this ratio indicate just a pcos or it can be a sign of something else?
    i will get an appointment for the scan but untill then this tthought of having pcos and its effects are making me crazy.
    can you please reply me what do you think of this situation.
    thanks.
