whenever i look up stuff about pcos i just get this overwhelming feeling that its not worth the money to get a diagnosis if u dont want to get pregnant or lose weight like those are the only things that matter
idk it just makes me…. rly sad
Yes and no….
Yeah i mean, if you go on the nhs website it relates depression and anxiety to feeling self conscious about the other symptoms of pcos and not as a thing in its own right. Which pisses me off because i know how badly hormones can affect mood.
not only that but the ways its treated can regulate periods which can remove an awful lot of worry and stress and like… people…. still only relate pcos to symptoms like weight gain and excess facial hair and acne which are signs but not major health concerns as opposed to type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease???!
