I was on the patch for about 3 years and stopped in Nov. 2006- I Havent Had a period since then. I spotted a day here and there through out 2007. I finally went to have a pap in Sept. of 08- I told the Dr. that I had no periodi for 1 year would periodically get sharp stabbing pains by my hip bones, the Dr. brushed it off as common from being on b/c so long. Well 1 month later, at the end of Oct. 08 I found out I was pregnant- it was Not a easy pregnancy. at 17 weeks found out I had several gallstones *20 weeks found out the baby had a cleft lip *27 weeks found out i had gestational diabetes * 1 week AFTER delivery was Hospitalized for 3 days with Preeclampsia.

Hello.Welcome.there are other blood tests to be done along with ultrasound abdomen to finally diagnose your PCOS.There is no need of any biopsy for the diagnosis of PCOS.Your pain in back and gas in abdomen may be due to GALL STONES you are having.You will have to undergo cholecystectomy for that.Your leucorrhoea ( white discharge ) can be managed by medicines.Talk to your doctor for that.My advice to you is reduce your weight and do regular exercises.your most problems will go away.Good luck.
