Polycystic ovaries

Hi guys,

I just had a pelvic ultrasound and it's confirmed my ovaries are polycystic. I had been led to believe that this is common and that PCO was not necessarily PCOS but the doctor today seemed to be saying I did have PCOS. My cycle is regular and she saw from the ultrasound that I will ovulate soon which is surely a positive thing. I had acne for a long time, since I was 10 and am quite hairy but not abnormally so. The doctor today said that it's more likely my Italian genes than the PCOS, as many women who have it are extremely hairy, have a hairy chest, full beard etc and I don't have that. So overall I'm not the typical PCOS patient. I went to the hospital a few weeks back and got my fasting glucose checked, that was totally normal and all the other tests I had were also normal.So no insulin resistance. I asked about fertility and was told there was no reason I shouldn't get pregnant just like any other woman, that if my periods became irregular, I should go back to the doctor but right now, everything looks good.

What do I do now? Just accept that there's nothing more I can do? Is it important to follow a low GI diet even if I'm not IR? What about birth control? I was on Cerazette which stopped my periods completely but I'm afraid to go back on it in case it messes up my ovaries even more...
