PCOS? :(

Postby cocolestrange » Thu Feb 27, 2014 3:07 am

Hi :) I'm new here, and I'm just wondering if anyone can help me interpret my blood test results while I have an agonisingly long wait to see my consultant...?

I don't have periods really, just a tiny 'spot' for one day, maybe twice a month. The blood test on Day 3 after my first period (if you can even call it a period - my first 'spot'!) revealed:

FSH: 2.9
LH: 12.5
Estrogen: 500

My consultant found at least 10 cysts in each ovary.

Does this look like PCOS? Any advice would be much appreciated x <3

If you have the cysts then yes, blood tests can come back normal, I was diagnosed by scan only, some times you can have no cysts which is why blood tests are done. Pcos is not the end of the world but we have to manage it as often don't get much help from the nhs. Let us know how things go.

Thanks for your reply Hols. So you think the blood tests look normal?

Oh I don't know, I'm not so good at that, other ladies may be able to advise!
