Ladies, you have been a trusted source of information in the past, and I have returned to ask another question of you... I'm not TTC, but investigating the possibility of PCOS. I'm uninsured, so the availability of doctors/answers is few and far between. I'm working on it, though!

So last week I had a pelvic ultrasound. They called me back to say it was "normal." Since I'm dealing with state care, I had my results forwarded to the other people caring for me at the same time at Planned Parenthood. The nurse there told me the results also said "bilateral ovarian follicular cysts" with something like "fluid in the cul-de-sac" which just sounds superb.

The question is: even though the result was "normal," can this be a PCOS thing? I have several other issues such as hirsutism (sp), weight gain, as well as other varied sypmtoms.

Let me know your thoughts if you have any. Thanks so much in advance.

Sounds like it could be.. Ovarian follicular cysts sounds like a dfiferent way to say polycystic ovaries...! I'd try to see another doc to get some tests run!

thank you for your reply! I'm trying so hard, and it's been so long... I'm actually hoping they'll finally tell me PCOS, you know?

Thanks again.

I agree, that term certainly sounds like another way to polycystic ovaries. Has anyone tested your LH/FSH levels through blood work? Everyone is different and there is no one test that says "yup you've got PCOS" (which is why its so hard to sometimes dx) but "typically" if the LH/FSH ratio is greater than 3:1 its PCOS. Just a thought.

Good luck and I hope you get some answers soon!

I agree that you should get it checked out, because it's better to know now than later...You have MUCH higher of a chance of controlling it better now.

Please keep us posted on what you find out, girly!

It sounds like a different way to say the same thing to me. I think I remember Anna saying once that she had something like that...I'll tell her to stop by this thread.

Ditto what Kaleigh said though - even if you have cysts, if the b/w doesn't indicate pcos, they won't diagnose you with it.

Good luck! I hope you get some answers soon!

Hello! I have polyfollicular ovaries. It's the same thing as polycystic. PCOS is also known as PFOS, though you don't hear that very often. My ovaries have a bunch of teeny tiny idiot follies that don't know how to grow up. They're stuck in immature teenage mode. With a little bit of Clomid or some dumb luck, though, it is possible for them to properly mature. I also have numerous symptoms and low estrogen. Good luck!
