Hi, yesterday I went for an ultra sound to find out why for the past 8 years i have been having prolonged heavy bleeding during my periods and also why i have been in such pain. At first all my symptoms lead to endometriosis but i have been back to my gynae today and infact there is no sign of endometriosis but i have been told both my ovaries are completely covered in cysts so i have infact got Polycystic ovaries, I am now due to undertake some hormone testing to find out what tablets i need to be on to help with my periods. I am only 18 and today is the first time i have heard of PCOS, so i was just wondering if anybody else suffers from this and can give me some advice really with what my future has to hold. I was told today that when the time comes for me to want a family i will have to go on a course of drugs as it will not be possible for me to fall pregnant normally, I am also worried that PCOS could make me completely infertile, is this possible? I just really need to know more information regarding Polycystic ovaries, hopefully someone can help, thank you. Hollie xx
