I was able to get in with a reproductive endocrinologist. It was so nice to make the appointment, tell them why I was coming in, and not have them talk to me like I suddenly was coming in to be treated because I grew five heads! LOL This has to be the first doctor's appointment I can honestly say I'm excited to go to. :-)

I see both a reproductive endo and a regular because I have Graves disease and Pcos. Given that u dont want to get pregnant, most endos do a good job helping with PCOS. I do have to say I got frustrated with my reproductive endo always pushing pregnancy plans on me. My endo focused on the metabolic syndrome aspect of the PCOS, and taught me a lot! I think most important thing is making sure you understand PCOS and what you and your body need and then you and either a reproductive endo or regular endo can work together to control your PCOS.

I suppose as I have gotten older I have started to become a little wiser about controling my PCOS. Since 2007 when I was first diagnosed, I have just seen regular doctors. I have never been to a gynocologist. My regular doctor has always given me regular exams and originally diagnosed me with PCOS.

Now that I have amazing health insurance and really want to get my PCOS under control, I have decided to see an endocrinologist. It would appear that many people feel that a reproductive endocrinologist is best to help me treat my PCOS, but at the same time, I'm not looking to get pregnant in the near future. Has anyone had any experience with seeing a regular endocrinologist vs. a reproductive endocrinologist? I'm tired of playing games with doctors and really want to find the right one to treat this condition.

On a side note, is anyone here from Columbus, Ohio? I really could use some help finding the right doctors to go to. Thanks everyone!
