His dx was based on the fact that my periods have been normal since April of this year. My primary doc did a thyroid test 2 months ago which is normal (low end of normal). Normally my previous ob/gyn docs did an ultrasound and hormone blood work. But he did nothing just a pap smear no tests nothing. He is also the first doctor who did not order these tests annually. Funny thing is I was finally ready to accept treatment for this.Everything else was ruled out in the 90's and again in 2006. Its just frustrating. (It just reminds me of the 13 years I was dxd and undxd with Multiple Sclerosis.) I'm in my 40's so I am so close to menopause. I don't know how much longer I would be affected by PCOS. Thanks Rhonda

I, too, hope that it's true- for your sake! We all know that menopause is the only way we truly get rid of this stuff- so here's hoping that your doctor is right!

While I really hope that it is true that you don't have PCOS, I would hesitate that the defining reason is regular periods. I usually have regular periods and still have PCOS. I had them even when I wasn't ovulating regularly. Is your dr running any bloodwork to make sure that your number don't signify PCOS anymore and to rule out thyroid issues as a cause of the hirsutism?

Our bodies do change as we lose weight. I learned that the hardway as my probably always there but pretty inactive endometriosis kicked into high gear once I lost 25lbs. At the same time though I have starting ovulating again. When I asked my ob/gyn does that mean I no longer have PCOS she said that only the numbers and other symptoms define that. Just because you are ovulating doesn't mean it is gone.

Hang in there and I really hope you get an answer soon.

So today my new gyn un-diagnosed me with pcos after 13 years. It was the first time I ever said I give in tell me about some medications to help this thing. I haven't had an ultrasound in about 4 years so I couldn't tell you if I have any or numerous cysts on my ovaries right now. My periods became normal about April of this year this is what made the doctor say I no longer have pcos. No tests just based on this. I still have hirsutism, but my acne disappeared last winter and was replaced by dry skin. I feel like I'm beating my head against the wall. I wonder if I could be going through peri-menopause and pcos may not be an issue anymore (one can hope).
