I have no advice on this but to wait until you have a true diagnosis. It seems like torture to put yoursef through this until you know for sure.

I hope everything works out for you.

What a bummer 🙁 PCOS can be a real pain in the bum. My bloods came back negative (quite common to have negative bloods, but still have cysts), but I wouldn’t be surprised if I have it too. 

The infertility is a reasonably easy fix once you know what the issue is, you don’t often have to resort to IVF with PCOS and some PCOS sufferers can conceive by themselves, but usually ovulation drugs are needed. I do agree that the other issues like heart disease are more of a concern. 

That said, your family history means you are aware of potential issues that could crop up so you know what to look out for, that you need to manage your weight and your diet and ensure you stay fit and get regular check ups. In that respect, you aren’t completely powerless which is a good thing.

Hopefully you don’t have PCOS, but if you do, try not to get too worked up about it. It is a fairly manageable condition 🙂
