December 2013: Pull the goalie, no prevention happening.

April 2014: Nothing is happening. No cycle for me since going of BC pill.

April 2014: Appointment with OBGYN (who was awful), but does run tests. I suggest that I might have PCOS, she disregards.

May 2014: Tests all come back normal. She claims nothing is wrong and asks me to take pills without explanation.

May 2014: I don’t take pills because my cycle comes. Yay! I think all is on track. Nope, sure is not.

August 2014: Back to no cycles since May. I call the doctor and finally find out what the medicine is for. Progresterone to get it started and she claims this will set me back on track.

August 2014: Progesterone works. Maybe all is okay.

September/October 2014: Nope, just had one cycle. Back to no cycles.

October 2014: Call doctor and demand more answers. She says, “Oh yeah, because of your PCOS…” Me: “Um, what? Apparently some of my bloodwork did come back abnormal, but not abnormal enough for them to be concerned at the time. But now, they’re concerned.

October 2014: Doctor orders a glucose test and ultrasound.

October 2014: Glucose is normal, but ultrasound is not. Lots of cysts on the ovaries, which is a sign of PCOS.
