When I was 18, I began to get my periods every 2-3 weeks with moderate to heavy bleeding. I was always very regular so this came as a shock. After several months of this, I went to an OB/GYN and they did bloodwork to rule out my thyroid, looked at my LH and FSH, and sent me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that I had bilateral complex cysts on my ovaries. They said that it is highly likely that it is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and put me on birth control pills. The pills help control my period but if I ever take pills a few hours late or forget and take the next morning, I still get my period midcycle.
Why I believe I was wrongly diagnosed is that I have absolutely no other signs or symptoms other than polycystic ovaries. My periods come too frequently vs. not at all or every few months. I am 5'5 and 110 pounds so obviously not overweight. No signs of diabetes. I do not have any unusual body hair or any facial hair. I have the perfect pear shape so basically nothing androgenous about me. I've researched and searched the internet and cannot find anything. Does anyone have an experience related to this?
