I've just been looking through some of the posts, and some people were talking about PCOS....what is it? Just a bit curious?

I have PCOS. Its a condition related to insulin levels. Usually women with PCOS are prescribed a mild diabetic medication to solve the problem. The main symptom is having a bunch of tiny cysts all over your ovaries (this is not the same as an ovarian cyst). Some women also are overweight, and can't loose weight no matter what you do. Some women have very irregular af. Some women get facial hair and such due to the production of male hormones. Some women are thin, and just have the cysts. Only a doctor can diagnose this problem either by blood test, or by u/s.

Thank you for your reply so quick. I wasn't too sure what it meant, as one women said that she now couldn't have children because of this.

Sounds like your friend needs to switch doctors. PCOS can be treated, and women with this condition have babies all the time.
