Hey everyone. My name is Christy and I am new to PCOS. I went to the gynocologist on Aug 18, 2009, and told her what I have been going through. She immediately said she thinks I have PCOS. I did a 2 hour glucose test on Monday and my insullin levels are through the roof!! I was put on Metformin and after 2 days I have feeling okay..no bad side effects. My doctor is on vacation this week so it won't be until sept 3 that I have a follow up.

For the past 2 years,I have told the symptoms to my general practitioner and looking back, he basically was just brushing it off. When i said I was gaining weight (like 25 pounds in just 4 months) he handed me a 20 page book of recipies his wife typed up. And said..here...try these low fat recipies.

I am so glad I have a gyno that listens to me. I am a fairly new paitient to her. I turned 38 the day after that appointment last week (yeah, Happy Birthdya to me :(...I have 2 kids, ages 13 & 10.
