I was diagnosed with PCOS and my insulin and prolactin levels are 30.9 and 60 respectively. My doctor put me on Glucophage and Prolactin for these before two months. I got my periods on the same month. But, until now no signs of periods. I have mild thigh pain, heaviness in my stomach, light stomach pain and bloating. My doctor told me that if I do not get my periods in the next five days, then she will go for a pregnancy test. I am really scared of thinking about my pregnancy with these hormonal imbalances. Is my imbalance too high that it will take time to conceive or to make my periods normal?
Your insulin and prolactin levels are high and you have been rightly started on Glucophage (Metformin) and a dopamine agonist. This will help bring down the levels over the next two to three weeks and shall help balance your hormones. If the menses are missing for more than eight days, it is better to rule out pregnancy. If it is negative, then you can be offered a withdrawal bleed with progesterone for menses. Also, you need to maintain a menstrual calendar for at least next three cycles.
