I’m wondering if I have PCOS (i know I post about my period all the time lol) because I recently skipped 2 periods. I’m on Loestrin 24 so I know this is pretty common with that pill, but this morning I also woke up to a breakout of white heads on my chin. I have acne prone skin to begin with (runs in family) but often it’s more cystic and not white heads so that was a red flag for me.
Other than that I’m kind of the opposite of what I hear happens to PCOS women- I’m pear shaped and don’t put on weight easily (when I do, it all goes to my legs not my midsection). I don’t have any facial hair and my body hair is disproportionately light. Nobody in my family has PCOS but I know that’s no guarantee. How likely is it that I Have it? I’m seeing a doctor asap, but I just want to hear input- any other symptoms I should watch out for? The only thing I’m noticing is the missed period and acne breakout.
