Im New To PCOS

Hi im Danielle,
i was diagnosed with PCOS almost a year ago and im still learning alot about it. I’ve always struggled with weight, quick hair regrowth, irregular periods, i went to the doc after being on my period for 7 weeks and it being heavy and painful, at first he tried me on many pills but didnt work so he sent me for a scan where they found both ovaries to have had cysts present and then from there the nightmare happened and i struggle daily with excruciating pain.
