Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 66 People

    I was diagnosed with PCOS about a month ago.

    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...
