A post about PCOS pt 1

I’m not sure whether this will be a connected series, but there will be a lot of posts about this, and how it affects me personally.

I have PCOS. It is a endocrine (hormonal) disorder that affects menstruation and has many other health consequences.
I was diagnosed Christmas 2007, after a blood test, an ultrasound and an MRI. The blood test measured how out of whack my hormones were (very), the ultrasound to see what my ovaries look like (cyst-y) and the MRI to ensure my pituitary gland was working out (it is). I am pretty much infertile. I have insulin resistance.
