PCOS -- Is 'hope' enough?
I'm currently 18 years old and have been diagnosed with PCOS.
I have struggled with acne since I was about 13, and I sometimes missed months with my periods.
For my skin I tried countless amounts of products and antibiotics to try and clear the skin but nothing ever worked.
So when I found out I had PCOS I decided to start taking birth control pills on the hope that it would lower the amount of male hormones being produced. The pill seemed to make things a little better my periods were always regular and lighter and my skin didn't seem as inflamed. However I stopped taking them after experiencing some side effects. I am not coping with this naturally and I can only hope that I do not have any issues conceiving in the future.
