I just found out about what PCOS was. I had no clue it even existed, and now i'm terrified of it. I was looking up reasons for hair loss, and BAM there were all of my symptoms listed in one little list.
I have high blood pressure
very irregular periods (sometimes skip months at a time) and then when it does come the bleeding so very heavy.
bad hair loss (by the way i'm 20)
lots of excess body and face hair. (its really crazy)((thick facial hair,leg hair, and arm hair)
acne, (not bad acne but acne non the less)
I am over weight and do struggle with lossing it. (considering the lap-band.)
I am not the least bit stressed so i know these symptoms aren't coming from that, i'm probably the most laid back person you'd ever meet. I have to go to my doctor soon, and i'm going to talk to him about this. But i'm on topamax for migraines and I think you can't take birth control with topamax.(which was never a problem for me.) but, now that I may need it? i don't know???
