Hi, I was just diagnosed, though I have a hard time believing this is my issue. I don't have alot of the signs of this disorder, I do have severe mood swings, (the last one I snapped the tendon in my hand punching something and that is just the tip of the iceburg) my periods have always been very irregular, tho they have been better this last year, and infertility was a huge issue for me. It took 10 years to get pregnant with my son, who is now 6. but I am not obese, do not have hair issues or acne. I don't understand why my infertility doc didn't see this. My ovaries were ultrasounded ALOT and they never had cysts. I have very high testosterone and my adrenal glands are overproducing very very high levels, and I do have a small tumaor on one, but that has been ruled out as incidental and not a contributing factor. My main issue is moods and depression. My life for the last few years has been a living hell, with suicide attempts and alot of self injury. I am learning coping skills, and I son't take anti depressant anymore (i did for a year) because they made me feel dead inside. I just don't know if this is what has been making me crazy for all these years and if it is I am totally pissed that it wasn't figured out sooner!
