Trying to conceive: I assume that you mean the gonadotropin "follistim". In any case, to treat a 27yr old who has been trying to conceive for only 8 mos, seems very aggressive. I suggest that you find a reproductive specialist and get a proper work up. ...Read more

Pcos : Pcos and irregular cycles are sometime difficult to manage. You doctor needs to check your hormone levels and perform an ultrasound. Based on the levels and the findings of the ultrasound he may treat you with progesterone, estrogen or birth control pills. Don't wait too long before you see him. ...Read more

Eat less: You lose weight when you eat less and exercise more. Be prepared for hunger pains. They are normal when you are losing weight. With a low carb diet, hunger pains diminish significantly by five days. The key with any diet is consistency and regular exercise. Good luck! ...Read more

Check Hormones: Once you are off the Yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) see your endocrinologist for a full hormone profile. There are several hormones that may be abnormal including but not limited to testosterone and insulin. This will help dictate which medication will help stimulate your ovaries to produce an egg. ...Read more

Ok, but no need: It would be ok to take them both, but they are both similar medications (progestins). If you need birth control, OCPs will five you that plus treat the symptoms of PCO better than the primo lute. Talk to your GYN. ...Read more

Low dose: Low dose pills such as yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) stimulate only a little growth of the uterine lining so periods are much shorter and lighter and occasionally you skip periods. If you have not missed any or taken any late you can safely just keep taking them. If this becomes a consistent problem your doctor may add some additional estrogen for a time. If you have missed some, I'd recommend a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Unclear: Your TSH is normal at 2.6. Your T4 seems high at 19.6, but you haven't provided the units that the lab was using. Consider re-asking question with the correct units for all the values. T3 (liothyronine) is likely okay as well, but, again, no units. Typically doctors will aim for a TSH between 0.5 and 2.5, so 2.6 is very close to normal. ...Read more
