Not all women with PCOS do not have periods. Irregular or late peiods could be a sign, as is the high insulin level.You do need to see your gynaecologist.

Had an op in March last year to remove cysts and at the beginning of Feb this year, I had to have my left ovary removed. The cysts had come back and were bigger. First sign of problems, was the pain and the on/off periods. Go to your gynae and have it sorted.

I''m not a doc, but my advice is to go to the gynae anyway. I went yesterday because I have been having sharp pains in my lower abdomen for a week, and we found a 5cm cyst on the left ovary!! Go now before it becomes too serious
