Hello All, I just wanted to check in and see what everyone has experienced as far as getting treatment. My obgyn just gave me a prescription for provera since I am on CD170.
I have most of the symptoms of PCOS and gained 15lbs in 2 months after coming off bc for no reason and my cycle going screwy, but she said they want to treat me with provera/clomid for 3-6 moths first because “I could have PCOS but she doesn’t see the point of sending me for all the testing since most people get pregnant on clomid and if I wasn’t trying to have a baby she would put me on BC as treatment”.
I was ok with it at the time b/c she also sent me for other blood work, thyroid etc, which all came back normal.. I was talking to my bff who is an RN and she told me that If I want the testing I should demand it or go see a RE myself (My ins doesn’t make me get referrals) I am only 31 but I don’t want to wake up still childless at 38 or 45 wishing I had been more aggressive sooner. Any Advice? What would you do?
I have to go back to get a provera clomid prescription if my cycle doesn’t get back on track, should I be more aggressive. I am a little afraid that If I Demand the testing they will want to hold off on giving me the clomid which I would like to start so at least I am doing something!!!!
