It’s been ten years since I was first diagnosed with having PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). It was an out of the blue diagnosis, which in hindsight had I done some research and put all my symptoms together would have concluded with PCOS. The condition is when small cysts cover the ovaries and other symptoms present themselves. It’s a condition that affects over 3.5 million women in the UK and can present itself in different ways in different women. Here’s how I live with PCOS ten years on.
