I have been diagnosed with PCOS and according to a document that my RE gave me from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine women who demonstrate two of the following 3 three characteristics, in absence of other specific causes of these problems, meet the diagnostic criteria for PCOS: 1) Chronic anovulation 2) Chronic Hyperandrogenism 3) Polycystic appearing ovaries (PCO) on ultrasound I do not have Polycystic ovaries and I'm not sure about the anovulation, but since my cycles prior to Metformin were at times irregular, then I believe I was may not have been ovulating. Plus, we have not been careful on several occasions and no oops have occurred. I had a daughter without any problem when I was 25, but I was much thinner then, so the extra weight is probably working against me now. I definitely have just about all the other symptoms of Hyperandrogenism. My worst symptom besides hair loss is Keratosis Pilaris, which looks like acne. My RE says that Keratosis Pilaris can be related to PCOS. I may have some actual acne, but not sure. I definitely have oily scalp/skin. And I also have extra hair (hirsuitism) where I shouldn't have it (chin, tummy, and toes). All my tests were within the so called "normal" range, except that I have insulin resistance that had already turned into Diabetes by the time I was diagnosed. I am curious to know what criteria was used to diagnosis you with PCOS? Do most people diagnosed with PCOS have high levels of total and free Testosterone?
