After 17yrs of dealing with this and being treated like a nuisance by my GPs and the local small hospital Endo unit, being told I have PCOS, then I don't, then I do again, I am ready to just stick private fees on a credit card and talk to someone who actually a) knows something about it and b) can actually be bothered to help. Obviously the top guy seems to be Prof S Franks, but does he do any private referral work? Anyone else really focused on PCOS? I thankfully have a wonderful Dermatologist who has sorted my skin (paid privately) but I need an actual diagnosis for the PCOS and the rest of the problems addressing. Utterly fed up of being told to look forward to Menopause :x
Self diagnosed: 1999
Formally diagnosed after much pressure!: 2005
Current regime: Massive amounts of weight bearing exercise, and controlled diet. Have taken/tried Metformin, Dianette, Yasmin, Marvelon, Accutane. Now on Spearmint, Agnus Castus and low dose Spirinolactone.
