I Am Suffering Emotionally From Pcos

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41 People

    I was diagnosed with PCOS about a month ago.

    Hopeful, Yet Discouraged.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS late April 2013. I've always felt something was wrong with me. Last year I only had two periods and thought maybe it was due to stress. I seemed to gain weight faster and was unable to lose any. I was always tired, sluggish and most of all depressed. I...
