@marriedbee_van:  Have you tried charting, do you have any clue if you are ovulating?

If you are that symptomatic prior to your period starting, I would presume that you ARE ovulating since those symptoms are caused by progesterone, which is the dominating hormone in the luteal phase. If you’re not ovulatin, your Progesterone does not rise, thus, no symptoms – no way to be sure without BBT or a blood draw.

Either way, I’ve never thought about the LH to FSH ratio, which should be higher…. I’ve always verbally said it like “LH to FSH” but if it’s not 1:1 then it’s off, thus indicating PCOS I thought….but I’m not sure. Did she check your insulin levels, your hemoglobin A1c, and/or a testosterone panel (free/bioactive)? Those would be additional labs I would ask for to help pinpoint PCOS and create a good plan for you.
