polycystic ovary syndrome?


Hiya....Just a question as i know nothing about pcos and wondered what the symptoms are? I ask as my AF's are very painful, farely heavy (sorry) and i get light headed, headaches, loss of appetite. I dont know if they are the symptoms, my GP is useless and tells me that the painful AF's will get easier after ive had a baby but i cant wait that long, i dread each monthly more and more as they seem to be getting worse as i get older any ideas? thanks in advance x

Common symptoms of PCOS include

* Menstrual disorders - mostly oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea but other types of menstrual disorders may also occur.
* Infertility, generally resulting from chronic anovulation (lack of ovulation).
* Hirsutism symptoms of hyperandrogenism, such as acne or hypermenorrhea[8] Approximately three-fourths of patients with PCOS (by the diagnostic criteria of NIH/NICHD 1990) have evidence of hyperandrogenemia.[9]
* Metabolic syndrome, characterised by central obesity, insulin resistance and other symptoms.

PCOS can present in any age during the reproductive years. Due to its often vague presentation it can take years to reach a diagnosis.

Serum insulin, insulin resistance and homocysteine levels are significantly higher in subjects having PCOS.

I stole the above from wiki. Your symptoms are common to the ones I get when I get my period. I also have a very rough time. A few years ago I was having an awful time with pains that were shooting up my backside when I would get a period and the period itself was very heavy. Turned out I had a cyst in my womb which had to be removed surgically.
Did you mention all your symptoms to your gynae?

You should really see a gynae. Can you not make an appointment by one yourself? The GP sounds like a bit of an idiot to be honest and it sounds like he is trying to fob you off. He should be taking you way more seriously.

She should have sued him for malpractice. I've met drs like that in the past that have no real interest in their patients. They just want to collect the money and that's it!
