I just met with a preconcepton counselor at Maternal Fetal Medicine. He said I may have possible PCOS and he was gonna send my midwife a letter telling her to send me to an RE to start Metformin.I also have an undetermined clotting issue(previous DVT/PE)and I will require lovenox or heparin during my entire pregnancy and up to 6weeks post.I'm just wondering if any of you ladies are going through something similar and what your RE recommends.Im just trying to prepare myself for anything and everything.View Thread
Hi this is my first post here I;m seeing a new GYN in the morning and Im wondering how I can have her give me a full workup for PCOS? Ive been to many Gyn's over my lifetime and none have even checked me for it as being a possible cause of AF being MIA most of my teenage yrs.At age 15 I did go on BC to regulate m-i-a AF's and it did work for yrs.This past yr AF went kinda haywire showing maybe 3-4 times last yr with Nov being my last full blown AF.Ive always been a Plus Size girl so I dont believe the weight is the issue as im having spotting here n there and alot of ovary pains here n there.can I just ask for a full work up with bloow,ultrasound etc?Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question im always confused on what to go over with when seeing a new gyn.Thanks.View Thread
