Long cycles....

Postby Tee2876 » Tue May 01, 2012 1:28 pm

Hello all,

Question to anyone with long cycles and suspected PCOS. Have any of you had your BW done on cycle day 3 had an FSH of 6, LH around 4.4 (making it those two "In range ratios") and all other ranges quite normal other then cholesterol and triglycerides being quite high and still get labled PCOS??

I am diagnosed PCOS even though my hormone levels have always been in the fringes of the normal range. I have long cycles (ranging from 35 - 50 days most of the time). One of my cholesterol numbers is slightly elevated. I have most of the secondary symptoms in droves though, the acne, body/facial hair, carrying weight around the middle, slightly insulin resistant, trouble losing weight. Have they checked your ovaries for cysts via ultrasound?

hi pdxmama i was told i didnt have pcos because my bloods were normal and i dont have ovarian cysts. they told me its weight related. but i have hirsutism and weight around the middle. i also suffer with acne now and again but it used to be really bad at one bit. my cycles are bad and always have been from 28-100+ days

Hey hunny! In the US there is a broader definition of PCOS so I've found out. My bloods looked GREAT! glucose on the boardline have to redo thyroid and havn't had O sono yet but they say here irregular long periods can classify you as PCOS. So I hope you get your answers soon - research D-Chiroinositol - i've read good things about it@
