Likely PCOS: Consider a day 21 progesterone level to confirm ovulation. Possible to have bleeding monthly without ovulation, although rare, can happen. Decrease simple carbs, such as bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and sugar.

Division: LH/ FHS ratio would be calculated by dividing 6.2 by 2.7 You may use a calculator if needed. A doctor should not make a diagnosis of PCOS only using this calculation. Since you periods are regular each month it is not clear why this testing was done. Most PCOS patients have less frequent, irregular periods.
