I think I have "polycystic ovary syndrome" but i'm not sure. What blood tests can be done to check?
You do need tests: Two reasons for blood tests - first to diagnose pcos, we need 2 out of 3 of 1. Irregular periods 2. Clinical signs like acne, hair growth and/or blood tests showing too much male-type hormones (androgens) 3. Ultrasound appearance of polycystic ovaries. Second we need to "rule out" other causes of irregular cycles, acne, hair growth: thyroid, prolactin, adrenal gland issues. See OB or fertility md. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Yes: In theory, you can still get pregnant. It is amazing how our bodies are set up to make pregnancies.

Obviously you will have some pain from the surgery. Are you trying to get pregnant? Dont see the need for it unless you have problems conceiving. ...Read more
