I hope you are all doing well!
I have had PCOS for about a year and I still have a lot of questions.
First of all, I have been doing a lot of reading on this and this group has definitely helped me a lot! The more I read the more I feel like my doctors aren't doing anything! :( I have heard that the doctors should be monitoring my hormones and such but the only thing they have prescribed to me is basic BC (which I hate), I don't notice anything different from being on it and not being on it. Also, I have read that when you have PCOS that means that you're body is insuln resistent. However, I am not on metformin or anything insulin monitoring med, and when I asked my doctor they said I didn't need it because I wasn't insulin resistent. (Which has totally confused me!) I feel like my doctors aren't doing anything for me.
I had a labrascopy procedure done last summer, and things seem to be fine.
I have been working out, eating healthy, eating very low carbs and tracking everything! I have barely lost any weight, which is discouraging, but I don't plan on giving up this time!
So basically, my question is, Should I be my own advocate and push for the metformin? or Leave it alone. I really have no one else to ask, so anything would be suggestions would be much appreciated!
