Could I have PCOS?
Perhaps you know someone in your family who has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and now you’re wondering if you have it too. PCOS does run in families but that alone doesn’t mean you’ll have it. The symptoms can vary from person to person but most women who have it, share similar complaints that often include irregular periods, trouble losing or managing weight, acne, and excess or unwanted body hair. We’ve created a quiz that can help you figure out if you could possibly have PCOS. Keep in mind that our quiz is an educational tool and does not replace or substitute medical advice from your health care provider (HCP). We recommend that you always talk to your HCP about any of your medical concerns.
Oh, and one last thing. If you find out that you have symptoms that are associated with PCOS, don’t worry. PCOS can be treated with diet, exercise and medication. We have lots of helpful information too. Check out our PCOS Health Guides.
