So, my OB has tentatively diagnosed me with PCOS. She said there are some tests they can do, but PCOS is more or less diagnosed with circumstantial evidence. She has refered me to a fertility specialist, who I am seeing next week, but I am nervous about what is going to happen. I've had Day 3 hormone tests and a standard yearly blood test done so far. Everything came back normal including glucose/insulin. From what I have read, I have to now go through a myriad of tests (invasive and otherwise), then get an official diagnosis and then I can start treatment? Does that sound right?

All I had was a vaginal ultrasound to see the cysts, and then some blood tests such as: Thyroid, insulin, glucose, testosterone, prolactin. There were a few more but i think they only took like 2 or 3 viles of blood for it.

My gynae confirmed it with that and then started me on Metformin for the insulin resistance, which is supposed to also help with the PCOS.

I had the same procedure as Jellybean93, if you have been TTC for less than a year, then the process might be a little more lenghty but if it has been more than that, then the doctor might choose to start you off right away with Metformin ( I was given 100mg daily) and perhaps Clomid or another stimulant for your ovaries to start working properly, always keeping in mind that it all depends how your body is reacting to Metformin and your hormonal levels are in shape.

Good Luck!
