Hi there people my name is Kathleen and I am new to this community. I am 26 years old and my doctor thinks that I might have polycystic ovaries so he is arranging a test and a scan to be done. I have not had a period for years and im definately not pregnant. For a few years I had been using depo-provera as a contraceptive but stopped that years ago and periods never came back. I have been noticing some darkish hairs on my upper lip and chin which I have had to remove and over 2 years have gained six stone so thats 6x 14 pounds ( i dont have a calculator to hand sorry ) It could be because I used to be addicted to crack and when I stopped crack 2 years ago I became a compulsive eater... it could be because I have been an alcoholic for 8 years and have somehow damaged my insides. But anyway im clean and sober now and having lots of tests done to find out exactly what is wrong with my insides....my doctor thinks its also important to test me for polycystic ovaries too cos some of the symptoms I have might indicate this....... I dont really know anything about polycyctic ovaries and will be looking around on the net etc to try and educate myself a bit about it. Anyway... I basically wanted to say 'HI'
