Some things to consider -- BCP Some of them promote insulin resistance in PCOS people.

Could I be PCOS without having the main time of the month issues? My TOM is normally very regular ever since I was 12. I get the usual back pain, watery abs, and cramps to know its coming. I can usually predict it down to the day. I do have some mild chin hair growth that's annoying, but not a big deal and a red dermatitis rash that shows up before my TOM and leaves in 3-4 days, but this does not always happen every month... nor does it bother me enough to have it looked at since it goes away so quickly. The main thing that bothers me is the weight issue so at this point, so being diagnosed as IR and needing Metformin will hopefully begin to help.
