Hi. I wonder if anyone could tell me how long they TTC for before going to GP to check for PCOS? We haven't been trying long but I have a lot of symptoms of PCOS: irregular periods with very long cycles, cycles where I don't ovulate, excess hair growth on face, and when I went for a scan with last pregnancy they said they saw cysts on ovaries but said this can be normal in pregnancy. I am currently overweight with a BMI of 26, so really I am wondering whether it's pointless going to GP until I'm a healthy weight or whether they will check for PCOS anyway.

I reckon get an appointment and go now, talk it through with them. Your bmi is under 30 so shouldn't prevent them checking it out.
Best of luck xx

Thank you for replying. Hate the thought of GP thinking I'm a time waster but would like to know either way. Will book appointment and hope for the best.
