I am 31 years old, and was diagnosed with PCOS about 8 days ago. I had never heard of the disorder, but when conducting research, I realized that the symptoms are basically the story of my life. Oh, and I also have fibroids. I have always had a consistent, monthly menstrual cycle, but apparently I do not ovulate each month. My doctor prescribed Spironolactone and Lo/Ovral. I have been taking the Spironolactone for a week, and I have already noticed a few small changes, including the disappearance of chronic constipation. Although my doctor says I will not see a change in my hairiness until the 5 - month mark, I am encouraged. My next step is a re-test of my FSH and LH on day 3 of my period, and an ultrasound. I would appreciate any tips or experiences that others can share.
