Awh hunny I'm sorry to hear that they saw all those cysts, but at least you know for sure now.

I'm kind of in the same boat. I've lost 16 lb and my cycles are still crazy. But from what I've read, some women PCOS can be helped with minimal amounts of weight loss, while others may need to lose enough to be in the healthy BMI range before they get regular cycles.

Even after weight loss it may take a while for the body to get back to normal. The cysts take time to drain and disappear completely.

Did the doctor give you any suggestions or options? I know one thing I've read a lot about to help PCOS is possibly cutting down on carbs, but I don't know if I'd be able to do that... I'd die without my carbs!

My goal is to drop the 30 lb necessary to get to a healthy weight. I'm hoping for normal cycles after it's all gone!

Good luck!

thanks for your reply emerald. yeah i dont eat refined carbs at all know and im on an exercise and diet plan and its working for me but there are no quicker ways to resolve this. i was 168lbs when i conceived my daughter and im only 4lbs away from that goal so im hoping something will start happening soon. im taking vitex and i have a follow up appointment in 10 days to discuss treatment which i am guessing will be metformin. its just disappointing to hear i could have been treated ages ago if the gp's had not ignored my symptoms and sent me for a scan
