Hi there! Board-certified obgyn here.

What are your periods like?

May I ask how old you are?
Any problems with acne or growth of facial hair?

Not really
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 19 days ago

The way we diagnose PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is when a patient has 2 of the following 3 criteria:

1) < 9 periods/ year

2) Either bloodwork indicating excess male hormone, or symptoms of excess male hormone (ie, facial hair growth, acne, male pattern baldness)

3) Findings of multiple tiny cysts on the ovaries, on ultrasounds.

More info from Mayo Clinic here.

It doesn't sound like #2 or #3 apply to you.

What are your periods like?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
