I agree---find a doctor who specializes in PCOS, and a reproductive endocrinologist would be a great option.

The EmpowHER medical library has a multitude of expert videos regarding diagnosis and treatment options, as well as women sharing their stories who have been diagnosed with PCOS.

You can start at this expert video: How do doctors treat PCOS symptoms.

I have PCOS and many of my clients do also. I would recommend finding a provider that is familiar with this condition and its treatment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a message. Blessings.

Thank you for the clarification. Do you think I should see a reproductive endocrinologist? I'm not trying to conceive but I don't think my GP knows much about PCOS and I have a lot of questions. I when got the diagnosis she pretty much just gave it to me and left it at that. I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed and frustrated.
