I've done some reading on it and asked him some questions, but hearing from people that have it would be helpful. What has been your experience? From what I read it said while some women experience certain symptoms and others don't, ALL women with PCOS have irregular periods. I have had irregular ones, but last year when I had lost 50 pounds my period was like clockwork, to the exact day. Also, I've always thought women with PCOS had a hard time losing weight. When I stick to eating right and exercising I lost weight fairly consistently, it's just that I've been lazy and eating bad recently. One last question.....my husband and I want to start trying for a baby in April, how much more difficult does PCOS make getting pregnant? Why exactly does it make it hard?
Second question....I've been to a male doctor before, in fact my regular gyno is male, but he's older so I feel totally comfortable going to him but I try not to since my co-pay with him is twice as much as my family doctor. For years I've been seeing my female family doctor for pap's, and I like her and all but sometimes she seems to gloss over things. I saw another doctor while she was on maternity for unrelated reasons (the doc that suspects the PCOS) and I really like him. He is very thorough and I feel like he catches things that she might not. The problem, he's younger and kinda cute so I am a little bit embarrassed to go to him for my pap. Ridiculous right? I should go to the doctor that will help me the best, I know this. But I'm always soooo nervous going to the gyno anyway so I can only imagine how nervous I'll be seeing him. Anyone else go to an attractive male doctor for gyno issues?
