OH! Yeah, the PCOS would constitute something like that! Sometimes I think I might have it. I don't have insurance though, so I can't really go through the diagnostics.

i hate the doctor not any one in particular... just going in general. I don't like the nurse weighing me, because she always has that disgusted look on her face like I'm some flipping whale or something..... after that i'm in such a bad mood... I especially dont want to hear if somethings wrong with me. I dont want to be labed with a "condition"

I know, it sucks. I hate getting weighed too.. sometimes I ask them if we can just skip that (like if it's not related to whatever my appointment is about) but I generally just try to stay confident and ignore any nasty looks they give me. No one wants to have a condition, and I'm scared to go too :/ but I hear PCOS can be managed well with medicine and such so I'm trying to get up the courage to go.

So... those of you who think you have pcos REALLY really REALLY REALLY need to get tested because it's honestly probably only going to get worse. I'm... in between gynos right now, because my old one was... a terrible human being who made me feel like she didn't have time for me. Let me tell you, I'm getting over my time right now, and while it only comes 3-4 times a year, it's utter HELL. I pretty much can't move for a couple days. everything from your shoulders to your knees just cramp up and you seriously just.. can't do it. and I'm comparing the pain to wisdom teeth, getting your tonsils out, and going 50 mph into the back of a truck, it's right up there.

Sound like you? Get your ass to a doctor and don't take no for an answer, and if they're not helping then find someone else. I know it's hard to find a new one, because i'm dealing with it right now... but I can't deal with it anymore. I don't want to see anyone else having similar problems.

See, I don't have the cramping problem whatsoever. My periods are generally cramp free and when I do have them, it's totally dealable. I have some of the other symptoms though, most actually, so I don't know.

PCOS is a syndrome not a direct diagnosis. So you can have all the symptoms or none. It can be severe or mild. I did not catch mine until I was 40. By that time I had corse black hair everywhere, HBP, no periods or extremely painful/heavy ones. moods that were horrific, depression, etc., etc.

Go get checked now before it gets worse. Remember the Doctor works for you. Go in ready to defend yourself. Use your fear/anger to let the Dr. know you cannot be intimidated.

I have a wonderful Dr. now - but it took 46 years to find her.

Good luck ladies, your health is worth dealing with a dickhead for an hour. Or keep looking until you find a good doc. They are out there.

I hate to add to the derailing of the thread, but I think I have it as well. The mood swings, the irregular periods, the abnormal body hair (that is SO monotonous and time-consuming to get rid of). But, I do not have insurance right now and cannot go.

When I was 18, I went to be tested for PCOS. But, instead of testing me, she immediately told me that because I was fat, I needed to lose weight and that it would solve all my problems of irregular periods, hair growth, and mood swings. She tested my blood sugar and then kicked me out the door.

I'm almost afraid to go somewhere now to be tested because of that horrible experience.

For all you who suspect you have PCOS, please please PLEASE go and get checked. Your best bet is to see an endocrinologist, NOT a gynecologist. PCOS is an endocrine disorder, not a reproductive disorder. The reproductive symptoms are simply that...symptoms. They aren't the root of the problem. An endo will do all the correct tests to see your level of PCOS (which, by the way, some PCOS symptoms are similar to hypothyroid and an endo will test that, too) and what you can do to control it.

PCOS is NOT the end of the world, ladies. I did struggle with fertility for a while, but ended up with some beautiful children at the end of it. With medication (or alternative therapies), exercise, and yes, diet, it can be controlled and you can live a happy and virtually mood-swing-free life...with normal periods and all lol.

If anyone would like, you can PM me and I can give you some resources to check out.

Aaaaalso. A lot of the ladies here talking about potentially having it are younger and approaching that age where we're getting ready to start thinking about maybe possibly having babies and um, if you have untreated pcos you're goig to have problems. Even if it's not a priority right now, it's still important if you change your mind down the road, you know?

It's not something you can really let slide because you don't think the symptoms are all that bad or because you aren't concerned about trying to get pregnant.

There are some really serious possible long-term complications of PCOS. Heart disease, diabetes, and endometrial cancer. I have known women who let their PCOS go untreated during their 20's and 30's develop these problems in their 40's and 50's.

Some women have success with alternative therapies and special diets, etc... But there are many who need medication to regulate their hormone levels because those methods will not work for them; no matter how committed they are to them and no matter how badly they want them to work. And that is what causes the long-term complications, the hormone imbalances. Because even though the symptoms might not seem so bad, and even though you might be able to mask or manage some of the symptoms with medications or other therapies, as long as the hormone levels are out of balance, the damage is being done.

If you have insurance or access to medical care on a sliding fee scale, get checked out and don't allow doctors to dismiss you. Keep trying and trying until you find somebody who takes PCOS seriously and who will treat the syndrome, not the symptoms. I went to several doctors before I found one who was willing and able to treat me effectively.

I dont understand why everyone is so afraid to find out. I was diagnosed with it probably about 15 years ago after going months between periods. I was diagnosed very early so there werent that many cysts. I was treated with birth control and glucophage (a diabetes med that not all drs use to treat pcos) and started to loose a little weight. As far as I know I no longer have any complications.
I also have a friend who was diagnosed with it and had more problems than me and she has had two children.

The sooner you know and treat it the better.

I'm not really scared to find out. I don't care about getting weighed, etc., but I don't have health insurance, and I have no job sooo no income. I'm not even sure I have it-- I just wonder sometimes. If it made me infertile, that is actually a positive outcome for me.

Seconding this.

I'm not really scared of finding out I guess.. more just nervous about a doctor being a bitch about it.. too many horror stories. Also doctor's copays that I need to pay out of my own pocket with my non existant cash flow.. aka, I'm fuckin' broke.

Because I am still in college, I am on my mother's insurance plan. She is laid off right now (along with everyone else in the country, it seems) and does not have insurance benefits. As soon as she goes back to work, I plan on making a doctor's appointment with an endocrinologist (I assume this is who I should see) about my PCOS symptoms. With weight gain, irregular periods, abnormal hair growth, and mood swings, I am almost positive that I have it and I need to get treatment as soon as possible.

I do want to have children some day, and as you guys have said, the longer I wait, the worse it will become.

Gah, if I could just get rid of the excess facial hair, I could deal with the weight gain and irregular periods. Waxing is so incredibly time-consuming, annoying, messy, and leaves my face looking really red.
