I'm 23 and on birth control (Loestrin 24). Normally my periods are somewhat regular, but really light and short. Last month I didn't have one, but I did have some slight spotting before my period was supposed to come. This month my period also skipped.
I have no other symptoms of PCOS except some acne on my chin (but occasional breakouts are not uncommon for me, I have oily skin, plus an expired skin product and eating wheat with my allergy may have caused this). I am a pear shape with thick legs, I don't gain weight in my abdomen, no hair loss or facial hair symptoms. My acne isn't really cystic, just small tiny whiteheads.
Did any of you ONLY have missed periods as a symptom? Should I be concerned? Other than the missed period and the whiteheads on my chin I don't seem to have symptoms. Will the other symptoms show eventually, or does this not sound like PCOS? Nobody in my family has it.
My weight gain issue is that I can't really lose weight on my own. I slowly gained weight as a teen and I was a size 26 last year. I have been slowly losing the weight with the help of Metformin and better diet. I am now a size 20. Hope that helps.
