Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
I recently went in for my yearly gyno check up with a new doctor who used an ultrasound to check me out. She immediately concluded that I have something called Polycystic Ovaray Syndrome. I'm still not clear on all the affects but apparently it causes an imbalance of hormones and has been the cause of or related to a lot of issues I've had since my teen years including an excess amount of body hair, depression, and irregular periods. My doctor says its not harmful, but if I would have caught it at a younger age I could have avoided a lot of these issues. If you or your daughter have similar symptoms, get it checked out!
