A friend thinks I have PCOS.  I think this seems like an overreaction.  But--I don't know much about it.  Can anyone give me the basics?

I'm sorry you haven't gotten any responses yet, dances.   I have found  soulcysters.com to be a good resource.  In the past they've had fairly active forums, though I haven't been in a couple of years, so take with grain of salt.  People there were supportive and knowledgeable.  Also hormonesmatter.com.  https://www.hormonesmatter.com/search/pcos

My case, if it even is one, is on the atypical end of things.  Only one of about a dozen GPs has dxed me with PCOS.  Literally I do have polycystic ovaries as my scans revealed many cysts but I always get my period, don't have especially heavy body hair growth or elevated androgens or blood sugar issues or most of the other common symptoms. 

There can be a lot of symptom overlap with depression and anxiety.

I have PCOS. It was diagnosed with a hormone level blood test and a transvaginal ultrasound:

• Cysts on my ovaries

• Infertility

• Hirsutism

• Metabolic Syndrome
