Hi, Dr. Stan here to help. PCOS usually causes and is associated with hair growth, anxiety/depression, but is not associated with stomach problems. Have you changed your diet? Taking any medication for period cramps? If you are taking NSAIDS to help control cramping, this could cause your loose stool. If none of these apply, then a visit to your PCP for stool analysis may be warranted. I am here to answer any additional questions. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better.
