I am 28 years old and I've been actively trying to get pregnant for the past 2 years. I recently underwent a laparoscopy by my gynecologist. She told me that I had minimal endometriosis, but that my ovaries and tubes looked normal. She told me that endometriosis is associated with infertility, but I don't really understand the connection.
My gynecologist recently told me that I have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and that I should try to lose weight before he gives me fertility medications. A friend told me that I should start taking a medicine to help lower my insulin levels. I'm confused about the connection between insulin and PCOS, and why I need to take an insulin-lowering medicine. I am 28 years old, and otherwise in good health.
