At My Wits End Figuring Out What is Wrong

I am at my wit’s end as to what is wrong with me and need some advice. I was on the contraceptive pill from age 17-27 (mostly Dianette as I started to get acne from age 20) but it gave me migraines and so I switched to a POP (Cerazette) at age 26.

PCOS with normal labwork?

This is a long question, for which I apologize. Some background: My OB/Gyn diagnosed me with PCOS, but my primary care doctor is skeptical of that diagnosis because although I have several of the symptoms (slight hirsutism, moderate acne, polycystic ovaries) my hormonal levels were all normal, I’m... [Read more...]
