I was officially diagnosed with PCOS last August although I have believed I've had it for about the last 10 years. I was prescribed metformin and have been taking it since. My last natural period was almost a year ago (1 May 2014). This is the longest time my periods have been missing. Normally it was an extra week to 10 days.
I had my blood tests done on day 2 of my cycle a few months ago (I was given progesterone to induce a bleed) and they are listed below. I am confused as usually with PCOS the LH level is often 3 times more than FSH. Whereas with me my FSH is almost 3 times my LH.
Does anyone have any experience of this? I'm seeing my GP on Monday as I know there is something not right with me but can't get to the bottom of what it is.
FSH: 5.8 U/L
LH: 1.8 U/L
Oestradiol: 96 pmol/L
Testosterone: 0.7 nmol/L
SHBG: 18 nmol/L
If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. My GP seems to thing I am time wasting and that I should just be happy that he thinks the blood tests are ok. We are trying for another baby but as I have one child already the GP is not prepared to help with anything that is involved with ttc as the trust will only help childless couples. Which I have no problem with but I am getting concerned about my health now.
Thanks in advance.
