I was told 5 yrs ago that I have PCOS by a GYN. He told me to follow up with an OBGYN and that he or she would be able to help me with treatment. I went to 3 OBGYN's and all just wanted to put me on Birthcontrol. I would refuse because, I wanted to become pregnant again. I did not know much about this disorder and the serious of it. My husband and I just wanted to have a child without medication. So, we left without any help. We said "if it was meant to be it would just happen". Well it never did and life passed us by. We are at peace without the idea that we are not going to have another child. My husband and I just want to take care of me and get treatment for PCOS not concievement. I've been on the Internet for the pass month looking on issues that I currently have and got worse this yr. I see that the PCOS is invading my body. I've reached out to a local Hospital in the area. I had entered Pelvic and sex pain in there site and it leaded me to a PT contact . She was able to give my 2 out of area Dr's that could help me. I do not have coverage there and than asked that they find me a Dr that understand's and can treat PCOS. They gave my the GYN that I went to 5yrs ago. I will be seeing him this Monday am. I will see where that goes'. I did not find EmpowHer until after I set this up. If I only new the different Dr's that are able to help I would of went else where for Insurance reason's. Who and what kind of Dr is the right Dr to see for ongoing treatment. I see that it is important to be in a support group, is there any that you know of in the Buffalo NY area 14225?
Thanks EmporHER for the great info and being there for us :)
