So I'm going to the gyno today. I'm really not looking forward to it. Last time I went was three years ago (and that was the first time I'd ever been, haha!) and it didn't go well. I brought up concerns that I might have PCOS, the doctor said I probably did based on my reported symptoms, tried to prescribe me birth control for it, and disparaged my alternative treatment to lose weight instead. ("Let me know if you figure out how to do that!")
This is a different doctor luckily, and I really do need to get better about going for my annual checkup since it looks like we're going to be here a while and I'll need someone for when I have kids anyway. I need to talk to him about PCOS (again) and my concerns about getting my cycle sorted out. My last one was 4 months long, yay. And I'm going to ask him about insulin resistance and metformin. I hear mixed reviews of metformin, but my carbohydrate cravings and my mood when I get too hungry are getting out of control, so I'll "ask my doctor if it's right for me".
Wish me luck! :(
