PCOS? Advice?
Jules17 posted:
Hello, I just turned 18 years old last month and I've been suffering health issues non stop since I was 16. As far as my lady health goes I started by going to my pediatrician when I was 16 and she found an ovarian cyst the same size as my actual ovary. She then referred me to a gynecologist. I told her about my discomfort and asked her to test my hormones because I felt so awful. She refused to do so and put me on birth control (I stopped taking after 2 months because it made me feel worse) which only left me feeling worse and caused me to miss 2 periods. Several doctors later my new primary care doctor finally tested my hormones after she realized that I have several symptoms of pcos, and my androgen was very high and my progesterone on the low side. She referred me to an endocrinologist where I restated all of my concerns and she insisted it was just because I need to lose a few lbs, however my testosterone was higher on that blood test as well. I am so frustrated and just want this all sorted out so I can feel well again. I am going to a new endocrinologist on Monday. Oh and I have lost 11 lbs but it has not helped at all. I also believe I had another cyst and currently have one. Any advice on what to do?
