I have a pelvic ultrasound scheduled for 10:00 am tomorrow morning.  I've known for a long time that I have PCOS, but I'm just now getting around to having a diagnosis made.  My bloodwork was all done last month, though I don't have the results yet (thanks to LabCorp being asshats) - but I'll have them to my gyno before my appointment on the 16th of this month).  Now, I have the ultrasound tomorrow.

I guess I'm kinda freaked out about it, because I figure that I'll finally know my "ovarian situation".  I don't know why I am.  I'm not really going to understand what the technicians "see".  Does anyone know if there are certain "results" from a pelvic ultrasound that will either (A) show "Oh, hey, you have PCOS - but, if you respond to the met and/or chlomid and actually ovulate you should be able to conceive" or (B) show, "Hey, you're totally screwed; regardless of what you take hormonally, there's just no physical way you'll be able to ovulate" ?

I guess I'm just trying to prepare myself so I'm not, like, immensely crushed, but still allow myself hope, if there is some; as my husband and I are TTC.  Thanks!

I know that my ultrasound tech was able to tell I have 'cyst follicles' all around my ovaries. And I did see the screen and it looked like small dots/circles on the screen. I think it is possible to ovulate, just hard to predict when (I'm still learning though so don't take my information as 100%). I have had 2 kids in 2 years, so it was possible for me to have kids...and I believe I have had PCOS for some time as in high school I had elevated liver enzymes, and bad mood swings up until presently...and hairs on the chin...I guess it really is just different for everone
