no. As long as you keep everything under control- blood pressure and cholesterol you should be fine- these are also symptoms- I know you said you don't have these symptoms now but they can come later.

Good luck in flight school- my husbands cousin is in flight school and will be getting his wings in July :)

when i was 14 i was put on tompamax and imatrex for my migraines, they didnt work for me, so i stopped taking them.  im sorry to hear that you were only 11 when this happened. i am 19 and have possible PCOS. i am to get tested for it in 2 weeks...i went to a clinic to get a pap smear and the dr. told me that i might have PCOS and that i needed to go to a specialist.  having pcos, does this mean you cannot have children? like you cannot get pregnant but you could carry children, its just that your egg doesnt drop or w/e? or does this mean you become infertile?
