PCOS UK (Verity)


Hi I'm 19 and haven't been diagnosed with PCOS but am confused as to some of my symptoms. I have only recently started having irregular periods ( 2 in one month, or a week too early ) this has only ever happened to me twice. Otherwise they've been very painful but completely normal. So far there has been no abnormal hair growth, or weight gain. I get acne with my irregular period but that may just be a abnormal period with normal hormones, so it's a bit confusing. I've been under high stress so that may be affecting it, but I don't really know... Any advice as to what this may be would be great thank you!

Hmmmm have you changed your diet recently? Or had an ultrasound scan? as long as your still getting a peiod it sounds like your symtoms are pretty normal/not that bad. Are you on any birth control too? I wouldnt worry until youve missed a period too many.


Stress can play a huge part in mucking up your cycle so it could well be that, or you may have PCOS but not have any obvious symptoms which is not uncommon. I would keep an eye on your cycle (make sure you have 4 periods a year tho) so keep notes so you dont forget, it may improve as life is less stressful.
