I am not sure a GP is competent to diagnose PCOS - and you just said the GP ran one set of blood tests (what are they?) and that you have one (just one) cyst... the guidelines ask that the doctor rule out several diseases before PCOS is diagnosed so one set of tests does not seem adequate and one cyst just does not seem to fit - after all it is poly aka multiple - cyst syndrome.
Lots of ovarian cysts come and go - but the dermoid cyst is not really in the same class of a PCOS cyst - it could be an undeveloped twin. As for having children in the future, you should still have the other ovary and once you feel better and get your health and your cycle back, all should be well.
I had PCOS and Cushing's disease - many cysts and endometriosis etc. I have no idea what you can take that is OTC or natural - there are some bio-identical hormones though.
hi i am 24yrs i had a dermoid that i was unaware of till it ruptured then i was sent to encroligist and had several bloods that took 3 months to some back now i have been told i have pcos ,it is true the only cure is surgery they keep growing thats the problem i have been giving dianette but i am only taking it 2 weeks so i cant advise but i was bleeding every 2 weeks for full ten days and very heavy when is surgery hope all go well happy christmas x
My GP just mentioned the size of the cyst. I had hormone tests in which testosterone is 2.2 ( 0.2-1.8), SHBG ( 30-110), Free Androgen Index ( 0.3-4.0). She also said that my LH is triple of FSH, coz it should only be double. In my pathology report, it said that it is combined results suggestive of polycystic ovary (PCO). Anyway, Merry christmas to all of you..
