Well, in my mind I have the worst case of pcos ever.
At age 13 instead of getting a period, I began to grow facial hair. This is when I was diagnosed. I am now 33, an awful long time to deal with this thing. I got my first AF at age 16 only after taking BC pills. The weight gain and mood swings are still a problem and my facial hair is more than just a nuisance, I grow a full beard and mustache, having to shave daily or every other day.
Talk about embarassing. My Husband of 9 years seems to understand, but I still have esteem issues. I have not had a period in 5 years, even after several attempts by my gyn to get it started using progesterone and estrogen. I even made my reproductive endocrinologist puzzled.
In Nov I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Its just one thing after another. I just don’t know what else to do. I think the hopes of ever conceiving are all lost. I am glad I found this website. I need support and I need it bad cysters.
