So I met with the new endo last week. The nurse forgot to order the a1c and the insulin tests when I called for blood work but the numbers that he saw just indicated PCOS. He doesn't believe that I am ovulating with the LH and FSH numbers that have. Of course the ever hopeful part of me says the blood work was done on CD13... maybe that was a huge LH surge. My LH was 12.7 and my FSH was 4.1 Definitely a 3:1 ratio. He was a bit uncomfortable talking about the hormones but seemed ok with telling me that he thinks my ob/gyn is not giving me a chance. He doesn't feel that there is anything, other than the HBP which can be controlled with meds, in my history to prevent me from having a healthy pregnancy. He thinks that clomid might work but I am just not sure about that. I know that woman with PCOS get pregnant with help. At the same time though, most of those cases are with injections. Am I mistaken? Right now I am just confused. I am over due for a pap and ultrasound but I am not sure if I should go back to my reg ob/gyn or go to the one that he referred me to. What I do know is that at my current weight, I don't feel comfortable being pregnant. I realize that is kind of goofy but I know how I physically feel and then to add the discomfort of pregnancy... ya, no. So DH and I talked, if I can get to my goal by July then we will start the process of getting him tested again and actually talk to the doctor about his count.
On the weight loss front, he was encouraged by my 13lbs lost since July 1st. I know it seems pitiful but it is progress especially for someone with an insulin level as high as mine was. He wants me to basically follow phase 2 of Atkins and eat only 3 times a day. Both of these are difficult for me but I have started tracking my carbs. I am allowing a lot more than Atkins would but it is a start. I track my food over here
