I have not been diagnosed with PCOS but I have a lot of the symptoms. I'm a 27 year old female and my periods are irregular (meaning I get a period every month but its not a normal 28 day cycle. My cycle ranges from 30-53 days apart), I have facial hair and excessive body hair, I have horrible acne that's mainly on my chin and around my mouth/nose. I had Mirena for 4 years and had it removed earlier this year. 6 months after the removal my acne started. I've never had acne before so this is really devastating to me and my self esteem. I'm wondering if any of you have any insight into what could be going on with me. I've looked into taking DCI bc I've read a lot of good things about it. I think I'm dealing with androgen dominance and low progesterone so would the DCI be a good idea? I know I should see a doctor to have my hormone levels tested but I do not have health insurance and don't have the money to pay for a doctors visit at the moment.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
