Can I Have PCOS?

Question... I think I may have PCOS. I am 28. I have irregular periods, they range anywhere from 38 days to 5 months. I do have facial hair which i have to wax regularly and seem to be getting more of those dark hairs on my chin. I have a bit of hair under my belly button but none on my back or anything. I am not overweight and think I'm fairly tone. I had an ultrasound that turned up normal and my doc doesn't seem to think I have it but i'm not sure. I have had cysts before but nothing chronic or frequent to say it's a problem.
Please help!

Have your doctor check your hormones levels and see if they are abnormal. Not every woman who has PCOS will have cysts. You could just have the hormonal problem, which is still linked to PCOS>

It sounds very possible for you. Go to your doctor and ask to get some blood work done. That is how I found out that I had PCOS. High levels of insulin and testosterone are a dead giveaway.
