She has tried just about every birth control there is out there. Nothing worked for her. She just had a sonogram done and was told she had PCOS. Well, after reading about it I find this very hard to believe. What gives? I would have to say she has absolutely none of the symptoms.
that's the same with me. Really no symptoms. I am 37 yrs old, 5'6" and 125 lbs, no excessive weight and no hair growth either (but I do have acne). I have about 10 cysts on each ovary - my doc compared it to a golf ball with its little dimples. Each dimple is a cyst. I was on the pill but then went off to save money (even with my health insurance I had to pay $50. For a while I was paying $25 and then the price gradually increased). Did your granddaughter ever have the D&C operation to fix the excessive bleeding?
