Regardless of me having acne, hirsutism and weight issues for the last 14-15 years (I am now 27) there has never been any evidence of PCOS to show up in a blood test or ultrasound (puzzling enough). My periods have always come every 21 days (super regular) and are normal in every respect also - but yet I have these "androgenic" symptoms. I just don't get it? and neither does me doctor, it's very confusing.
I even went to an endocrinologist I few years back and everything once again came back normal - they tested me for everything from PCOS to CAH and nothing came up. Completely unremarkable.
Maybe they're missing something? is there a possibilty that I could have some rare variant of the syndrome? I just would like some damn answers one of these days. I just will never understand.
- Why do I gain weight on half the calories of a regular adult? and have to eat a "plant based diet" to maintain a normal weight (otherwise I swear to God I'd be obese).
- Why is the majority of the cystic acne I experienced exclusive to the jawline? (A PCOS indicator)
- Why do I have to shave my chin, neck and stomach twice a day?
