I have PCOS basically this means you get multiple cysts in your ovaries. You may have an irregular cycle and weight gain. There are several other symptoms but these are the most common. They also say PCOS and diabetes have a link. Most people with PCOS get treated with Metformin (a med used for diabetics).
This is said to help regulate your blood sugar and help w/the affects of the PCOS.

I would start by changing your carb intake and see what the dr's say about putting u on Metformin.

I hope this was helpful.

I've read that it is hereditary, passed from mother to daughter. I know it messes with your menstrual cycle and periods.

I am not so sure pcos is hereditary of a condition that is now being diagnosed more often because of improved technology. I am certainly no expert, but I was under the impression that most of the conditions with "ovary" in the title form the core of what ends up lumped together as Unexplained Infertility, and the numbers for UI are coming down as the technology is doing a better job of finding actual causes.
Hope this helps.

After coming back a few weeks later and rereading my previous post above, I wish I hadn't sounded so sure of myself. When I read it again, it seems to have a sureness and certainty which I do not have and did not intend. I was trying to say that I THINK some of what gets labeled "Unexplained Infertility" are actually conditions that doctors are not able to properly diagnose and so U.I. ends up sounding as if it is an actual condition, when it's really no more than saying "I don't know." In other words, the problem is "unexplained." To me this is not an answer and should not be accepted by any patient. You should find another doctor who is more diligent or more committed to helping you. I think there are many fertility centers out there that only want to sell and practice the treatments they specialize in, and anyone else who comes in or wants some other treatment gets politely discouraged and shown to the door. And Unexplained Infertility is one way to do that. (I'll probably regret this post too, later on, but I think it's probably closer to the truth than not.

I had the same issue with my previous cinic. Now I am in a new center and trying to arrange an IVF cycle. I seem to be having trouble producing good eggs for ivf. I wish I'd have frozen a few when I had the chance.

High fsh has always been a concern, but the one last week was 35! through the roof.
I've been reading about DHEA and may consider starting it. Does anyone know if you can manage this on your own?
