Any Advice would be apreciated!

I think I may have polycystic ovarian syndrom but Im not sure. I have always been irregular had as much as 5months between once. I get bad headaches all the time. I have skin tags and dark patches of skin on my neck and thighs. I have heard that these are all symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrom but Im not sure can anyone give me any information. By the way I am 18 so if my periods were going to straiten up they would have done so by now! Thanks!

Re: Any Advice would be apreciated!

I have a few freinds with PCOS and they have the same symptoms, along with weight gain and acne. The only way to be sure though, and get the proper treatment, is to go see a gynecologist. One of my friends was successfully treated with meds and she feels better than she has in years, so it can be controlled with the right supervision and help from a doctor. It's impossible to say though, for sure, that PCOS is what you have, so I wouldn't recommend self treatment other than perhaps your diet, but really seeing a gyn would be in order.

Hey!
This caught my eye. Because I am 19 and I have just recently been diagnosed with PCOS. I went to my Gyn and they did blood work and then diagnosed me. I am now On birth control pills to regulate my periods. Seeing that I would go months without one. I have the acne, weight gain, and many other symptoms of it. You should definately go and see a gyn and get tested for PCOS. You need to get it treated and under control early if possible. If you need to talk or have anymore questions just post... and I'll respond. Good luck!
