My daughter was diagnosed earlier this year with PCOS. She is taking Metformin Extended Release and Synthroid. My concern is that she has been having pains in her lower right abdomen. I took her to the ER just to be informed that since she wasn't running a fever that I was wasting time. All they did was a urine culture. Is having pain normal for PCOS sufferers?
My daughter is 15 and has never had a period. Her doctor had an ultrasound done and said at the time she was ovulating but that was 5 months ago and sitll nothing..
Update: My daughter is now 16 and is experiencing her first menstral cycle. Her primary physican sent her to a endocrinologist who put her on prevera for 10 days and on day 11 she started. Now the endocrinologist wants to put her on YAZ. I have heard horror stories about this medicine. I called her primary to get her advice.View Thread
