Re: Hair Loss----PCOS??? Help please!
Hello, I have PCOS but never really had big problems with my hair, my hair falls a little when I brush it but nothing to be alarmed about. On the other hand, I had excessive hair on my chin and side burns, I say "had" because I took care of it with electrolysis. I took the pill for many years and I didn't have any problems with my hair. Keep in mind that not all women with PCOS have all the signs of PCOS, every woman is different. I'm not a doctor but I still can't beleive your doctor is not too concerned with PCOS. Not to scare you but infertility is only one risk you face with PCOS, you also run the risk of getting high blood pressure and diabetes which cause heart attacks and strokes. So PCOS should be taken very seriously. Maybe you should go to a different doctor so they can run more test. I changed doctors 3 times until I finally found someone who properly diagnosed me and was concerned about me. Sorry I wasn't much help about the hair issue, I just never really had any problems with my hair.
Good luck to you.
