Did you know September is PCOS awareness month?! What a perfect time to share my experience with PCOS.
I was 17 when I first questioned why I was packing on the pounds and my periods were completely absent. In the back of my mind I knew something was wrong, so I searched to find someone who could tell me exactly what was up. After hearing many times “this is completely normal” I decided to try a gynecologist, she listened to all my symptoms and without hesitation she told me “you have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome”. She explained that I would have to go for some further testing to confirm her suspicions.
