I have had pros for 10 yrs
I didn't know there were types
all I know is my sugar is high but not diabetic I'm losing my hair on my head and growing it everywhere else
I'm curious to know which type I have now
I'm curious how to know which type I am, since I have no clue what the symptoms mean exactly. Without birth control, I have 3 or 4 periods a year, about 2 weeks each - no cramps if that's relevant. High testosterone, not diabetic. So traditional?
Wow! I had no idea there were so many types of PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 14 or 15 years ago. I was told by my OBGYN at the time that I had a 'classic case of PCOS' and I never knew it could take on so many forms until I started to do my own research, but even this is something I've never read.
I would classify myself as non-traditional PCOS or quite possibly Syndrome X.
I'm semi-ovulatory with poly-cystic ovaries, high androgens and borderline diabetes. I have regular(ish) cycles but I don't always ovulate. I also have hypothyroidism and some kind of adrenal gland issue. woot
