I'm new here and I just posted a small intro message in the main board for newbies, but I did need to rant and get some things off my chest, which is main reason I joined these boards to begin with today.
Today I went to the doctor and had an ultrasound done since I've had horribly irregular menstrual cycles and many BFN's. She saw abnormalities and talked about me possibly have PCOS. I know very little about it, but what I've read has terrified me.
Reading about the hormone changes, makes me feel like I'm suddenly less of a woman. I've always loved my body and felt sexy, my boyfriend and I have really good sexual chemistry and I've always felt like I had a lot of sexual energy. But finding this out, and reading all of the symptoms and reading about what chemically happens with PCOS, I suddenly felt like I'm less of a woman. I dont know if it's because of the infertility associated with it or just that the symptoms explained (lack of AF, decreased breast side, acne, facial hair, etc) I suddenly feel horribly disgusting. It's hard to explain but I know I can't be the only one. I mean, I'm 24, 5'11, only about 145 lbs..why do I feel like I'm disgusting now because I've been associated with this disease??
