I have suffered from pcos since I was 17 I am now 23. I am

Customer Question

Hi I have suffered from pcos since I was 17 I am now 23. I am healthy and regularly go gym and eat healthy too. My BMI is 22. I had previously been on and off the pill for my excessive hair growth but I never remained on it consistantly. I had tried for baby for over a year but nothing, no periods. However, for the past two months decemeber I had a “bleed” of brown discharge which lasted around a week and then again last week thursday currently very light almost gone still brown. Me and my partner have been trying again for 6 months now but still nothing. Have also started ovulation tests but so far no positive. Not sure what this brown discharge is? Could it be a period or not? Is there any medication I could ask for to get my periods and ovulation naturally going. I dont want to go on the pill that will not help me concieve. I have also had many scans before my tubes are not blocked and ovaries have been said to look fine in the times that I have done the scans. Is there anything you recommend? I have heard of metformin but have been told that I have to be overweight to use this? Is there are argument for this?

Thank you for that additional information.

At this point I think the best thing for you to do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.

Does this make sense to you?
