: I just reviewed my bloodwork results with my g.p. for
: pcos diagnosis (she would not refer me to a endo right
: away per my request). My DHEA level was at 258 within
: normal range compared to one done a few years ago
: which was 3755. However, my FSH and LH were both 0.5
: which shows in the range for a pregnant woman (I'm not
: pregnant or trying). She has now agreed to refer me to
: an endo and would give me no other input. Can someone
: give me an indication what these FSH and LH levels
: indicate. It is going to be a long wait until I see
: the endo. Also, I have read (LHJ article) that PCOS
: woman should avoid birth control pills containing
: Levonorgestrel since it "mimics" male hormone symptoms.
: She changed my bcp from Tri-levelen to Tri-phasil which
: contains this!!! Will this increase my pcos symptoms
: in the length of time it is going to take me to get
: into the endo (about 6 weeks). Symptoms are hirsutism,
: overweight, exhaustion (sleep 10-12 hr nightly), past
: DHEA elevation, arms breaking out and occasional
: hypoglycemic problems (glucose was 91 with recent
: work). Periods have been normal even without bc pills.
: I appreciate any info that can be provided.
: P.S. Thyroid was also normal. No past LH or FSH levels
: were obtained.
