I'm 25 years old. I'm currently on birth control and not looking to get pregnant .right. now 😅 but I would like to find a good doctor in my area that actually knows what they're talking about and isn't dismissive, so I can discuss future fertility options, lifestyle plans now, what I should be doing/looking for etc. Any suggestions of a good specialist or good gyn/obgyn in or around Seattle, Wa? (I live just a little north of there)
Check out the side effects of birth control x
Wish I could help, but I would definitely recommend making a couple appointments with different doctors. Even though you don't want to get pregnant right now, there may be a lot of work you have to do with your body before then. Also, I think COVID is delaying doctor appointments everywhere, so it might be months before you can see a doctor anyway!
My advice a holistic, naturapathic or Intergrative Care doctor in my experience they have a habit of keeping up with the most current information. I can offer some key things to ask doctors offices as you call around. You want a doctor who looks at your adrenal function and cortisol levels, you also want one who has an understanding about the MTHFR gene mutation and how it coralates to PCOS. The MTHFR mutation is the most current medical information that relates to PCOS if the doctor doesn't know what it is then they are still in the old way of treating PCOS and the new way is so much better.
You need to meet with a few different reproductive endocrinologists who specializes in PCOS. We did that like fertility MD interviews and went with the one I felt a good vibe with that understood not just the medical but emotional side of PCOS and struggling with fertility. I had one daughter via in office insemination after mnths of trying and then my other came three months after being off my BC. Lol IDK don't ask. Remember this God has his plan and nothing will stop him! Lol praying when your ready!
