    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...

    I Think Pcos Destroy's One's Self-confidence

    I'm 14 years old, and I was diagnosed with PCOS only a few days ago. The doctor told me not to worry since it could be treated, but I researched on what PCOS is and my spirits kept on being dragged down. I remember seeing that a woman with PCOS is more likely to suffer from...

    I have had a suspicion for years that I have this but went to three doctors who dismissed it right away without taking blood work because I didn't have any of the "typical" symptoms. I didn't have facial hair or missed periods so therefore they decided it wasn't worth looking...
