A very big misconception about PCOS is that you have to have cysts on your ovaries to have it. I have never had visible cysts, yet I have PCOS. It’s an endocrine disorder that causes your body to put out too much male type hormones which causes symptoms such as infertility, irregular cycles, too much body hair, hair loss on the scalp, and others. Doctors are now discovering that cysts are only one of the possible symptoms of PCOS and not the diagnosing factor of it. The way to find out if you have it is to get your androgen levels tested and see if they are elevated for a female or not. Mine are on the high end of normal for a female. I’m so sorry that you are so worried. I hope everything comes back normal and that you conceive soon and have a happy and healthy nine months. I’m not so lucky, I already know that it’s pretty much guaranteed I can’t get pregnant naturally on my own, so I have to resort to medical interventions. Not every woman with PCOS is like me though, so even if you get the diagnosis, there is hope! Plenty of women get pregnant with PCOS!! I’ve been pregnant once, but it was ectopic. Anywho, I wish you the best of luck. I just messaged because I saw about your irregular periods and how you had dismissed PCOS because of your ultrasound. I did the same when I was younger and went years untreated.

@StevieJo:  I’m glad you read up more about it, but I’m sorry to hear you feel you might have it. It’s not something I’d wish on anyone. ๐Ÿ™
