I was diagnosed with PCOS the gyn says I have nothing to worry about unless I want to get pregnant or worry about getting facial hair. I am not receiving treatment because he said it wasn't serious. Now I am worried he was wrong

I've been dealing with this for over 15 yrs, so I can say, even in extremes, yes, you can have kids. I have 2. If you get hold of a GP who won't take it seriously, find another one. the treatment I use is 1500mg daily [1 at meal times] Metformin, 2 iron supplements (Metformin can make you v tired from malabsorption of iron) daily and a b12 shot monthly, (metformin stops b12 absorption in some cases too). these few hiccups have been nothing compared to what I gained. After years of struggle with eating disorders that hospitalized me and almost ruined my health and mental well being, I am able to maintain a normal weight with moderate diet and excerise regimes. the right drug regime is key, don't let them tell you do nothing until you want to be pregnant or prescribe birth control. There are so many things we know now that this can affect, hormones, depression, kidneys, pancreas, heart. Take it seriously- it is easily managed but it is a condition. Best of luck-
