Have any of these symptoms?....... It may be PCOS
November 24, 2008 at 12:39 AM

·        Irregular periods or no periods

·        Painful or unusually heavy or light periods

·        Irregular or absent ovulation

·        Hirsutism (hair on face, stomach, thighs, arms, breasts, etc.)

·        Alopecia (thinning hair or male pattern baldness)

·        High blood pressure

·        Infertility PCOS is the #1 cause

       ** although many women with pcos still get pregnant

       high incidence of miscarriages

·        Obesity (especially around the stomach)

       *** although thin women can have it also

·        Difficulty losing weight

·        Insulin resistance or hypoglycemia

·        Fatigue

·        Depression or SAD (seasonal affective disorder)

·        Mood swings, some women report feelings of anger or aggression

·        Acne

·        Ovarian cysts

·        Skin tags

·        Acanthosis nigricans (dark skin patches, often found on the nape of the neck, groin, under breasts)

·        High cholesterol levels

·        Decreased sex drive

·        Excess "male" hormones, such as androgens, DHEAS, or testosterone

 

      Symptoms vary widely and it seems no two women have the exact same list of symptoms. If you think you may have PCOS, please see a doctor for a diagnosis. Don't be afraid to seek a second opinion, PCOS is notoriously under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed. If your doctor does not listen to your concerns, please find another doctor. So often I hear from women who have gone undiagnosed or untreated for years because their doctors would not listen to their concerns.

    mine was by ct scan and then ultrasound. They thought my appendix was going to burst but it was several cysts rupturing. I was at the er though and dont have insurance or a personal dr.
