So for years, probably about 8 Ish years I've believed I could have PCOS, that was when I first heard it mentioned but I have had symptoms for a lot longer.
I'm 30, I've got problems with facial hair, very irregular periods, light periods, hair loss on my head, struggling to lose weight, bad moods and bad sleep.
I was taking to a friend who said these were all things she experienced before being diagnosed with PCOS.
My problem is I have a terrible phobia of doctors having being treated badly by more than one in the past and even the thought of booking an appointment is too much. However all these things are really setting my life back and I'm thinking if I know exactly what to expect then I might be able to go and speak to a doctor about things.
For me it's mainly the weight and hair loss that's getting to me. And I know you probably think I am rediculus for being an adult scared of the doctor but it's a real problem for me. Can anyone give me more information on how you were diagnosed?
