    I was diagnosed with PCOS about a month ago.

    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...

    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...
