Could I have PCOS?

Postby DoctorWho » Sat Jul 05, 2014 10:06 pm

Hello ladies!

My only symptom (though what a drag it is) is hirsutism... I am of normal weight, and my periods are regular. Blood tests came back normal and so the doctor said it was very unlikely to be PCOS. However, should I push to have a scan of my ovaries done anyway? I am already on Dianette and Spironolactone--so I don't know whether a PCOS diagnosis would make much of a difference.

At what point did you realize you had PCOS? Was it after an ultrasound? Blood-work? Self diagnosis? I feel as though my doctor doesn't know very much about this topic, but I want to make sure I'm getting the proper treatment.
