New here question about pcos

Hi, My name is Robin and i'm 43 and ttc#2 for about 6 months now. I recently had a doctor's appt with my primary care doctor and she suggested that I see my OB/Gyn about possible pcos. I've done some research about this on the internet and I thought I would check here to see if anyone has this or knows more about it. I have a doctor's appt on wednesday but i'm not sure what to say I don't have irregular periods or at least I don't think they are. If anyone has any info on this I would be most grateful. Thanks

Hi Robin,

Welcome to the board!!! Glad you found us!!! Many women with IF have PCOS. They will test your insulin level & see if it is high. If it is, it affects egg quaility. They would put you on meds like Metformin or Glucophage & that will help you.

An question you have along the way just give us a post!!!
