I just created my profile and it asked what type of PCOS I have. I didn't realize there is different types. My doctor didn’t tell me that. I feel so lost about this. I been trying to do different research to figure out what I can do to help reduce the symptoms of PCOS.
1. Type 1 PCOS:
The classic PCOS presentation described above, with ovulatory issues, increased testosterone, and insulin-resistance.
2. Type 2 PCOS:
The non-insulin-resistant PCOS we have already described, with ovulatory issues and increased testosterone levels.
3. Non-Traditional PCOS 1:
Presents with ovulatory issues, normal testosterone levels, obesity and insulin-resistance.
4. Non-Traditional PCOS 2:
Presents with normal ovulatory patterns, increased testosterone levels and mild insulin-resistance.
5. Idiopathic Hirsutism:
Presents with normal ovulatory patterns, increased testosterone levels and no insulin-resistance.
I didnt know this either and have never been told by a provider which I have, which makes me angry because the more info we have the better we can help ourselves.
I'm in the same boat! My Doctor takes blood every year at my annual but has never told me what kind. I'm going to ask at my yearly in September.
I did not know there were different kinds
I’ve never been told either
