Is this PCOS?
Jul 15, 2013
Hi All,

I am 33 years old. I always had normal periods then went on birth control pills as a teenager. Continued to have normal periods. Went off the pill to try to conceive. Got pregnant within a few months. Had a normal pregnancy, C-section delivery. Then the problems began...

After the birth of my son, I went an entire year without a period. I was not breastfeeding, although I was lactating. My prolactin levels were high. I finally got a period around the time my son turned 1. I had a few months of normal periods and then went back on the pill. A few months ago, I stopped taking my pill the week of the sugar pills, and never got my period. Haven't gotten it since. I am not pregnant. My doctor ran some blood tests and said my hormone levels (didn't specify which ones) are high. He suspects PCOS and has referred me for an ultrasound.

Since the birth of my son, I have gained about 40 lbs. I have had darker hair all over my body, especially on my face (sideburn area, chin, neck). I have also been suffering from moderate to severe acne for several years.

Does this sound like PCOS? Has anyone been diagnosed with PCOS later in life and not as a teenager? I always had regular periods until I got pregnant.

Any replies are greatly appreciated! TIA!
