I have many of the symptoms of PCOS, I finally went to my family doctor to talk to her about it . I said to her, another friend of mine has it and we were talking about it.

My friend asked what symptoms I had. I said I goggled PCOS to see what it was, and the symptoms and My doctor said very rudly and snarkie,THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET. Its not like i am in there every day or week , I only go and see her once every 3 or 6 years .

She made me feel like its all in my head, and i made this up and didn’t want to help me. She gave me some blood work, just to make me happy. When I talked to another member in a PCOS group, who is a nurse. She asked what blood work my doctor gave me, and I told her and she said that’s normal blood work they give everybody its a general kind of blood work and it was non fasting the blood work i needed was for fasting.
