I have recently turned 17 and been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, however my GP wants me to get 2 internal scans (TV and TA) to see if I have polycystic ovaries, and I'm honestly just scared and confused on what to do.
I have most symptoms of PCOS, and I have only had my period 2 times over 4 fours, but I don't know to handle this. I have anxiety and at the moment this is increasing.
It feels like I have to change everything, I have to have a diet of not much sugar or fat because of diabetes (also family history), I have to go on the pill otherwise it increasing my chances of cervical cancer, however I smoke as well, so I have to give up (which is a extremely positive thing), and I have to wax areas of my body because if the excess hair, and cannot lost weight at all. My GP also told me if I wanted to get pregnant in the future, I would have to look at medication and IVF, and maybe even surgery.
I understand that a lot of women go through this, I just don't know how to handle this at all, I feel so lost.
