My gyn said it seemed like I had PCOS even though I didn't have all the identifying symptoms because my period was so irregular. Sometimes it would last for months and months and then other times it would be gone for months and months. I wasn't ovulating, and even with prescription meds I couldn't either. Since my surgery 3 months ago, I have had my period like clockwork and they are not as heavy anymore. :) Thinking that by the end of this year we will be trying for a baby again!

We did three different fertility doctors. The last one did testosterone and insulin levels to determine my PCOS. He recommended and endocrineologist. Maybe they could check those on you? Good luck!

Heather, I am not diabetic either (never was) Was 230 at my highest weight. They determined I had PCOS after clomid (they had me up to 5 a day) and I had multiple eggs and still none of them were dropping (they determined this by ultrasound daily). I always had regular periods. Just saying if you have any trouble getting pregnant after being diagnosed as PCOS those are good lab tests (testosterone and insulin) to get. You don't have to be diabetic to have PCOS. Actually with too much insulin your blood sugar runs low (hypoglycemia)

Oh that is so awesome to hear!! I am having surgery next week and was diagnosed with PCOS about 4 years ago. No ovulating and WHACK periods. My last one lasted 7 months and it was SO heavy.

Thanks for the encouragement!! :)

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
