Hiya,

You do really need to see your GP and get the tests that are reccommended in the threads above.

PCOS affects people in different ways.

The first step is to get tested and find out whether you do have it. Also your other bloods will check whether you're ovulating and what your other hormone levels are like.

The ultrasound will check whether your ovaries have a polycystic appearance.
