PCOS & trying to get through my day...
Hi,I am 30 years young...
I was diagnosed with PCOS & Insulin resistence about 3 years ago. I subsequently went on to Dianne and Glucophage. The cysts went away and my periods became as regular as clock work. I did not need to stay on the Glucophage, but remained on the pill.
I since got married and would like to start my family now. I went off my pill in October 2007 and still got my period in November and December. I seem to be late this month (Jan 2008) and took a home pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. I am disappointed..:-(
My question is: Once diagnosed with PCOS & Insulin resisitence will it always be there?
Thank you...

In general, PCOS can only be managed, not cured. Perhaps wait a few days and then repeat the pregnancy test.
