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.
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.
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!
