    Hi All,

    I have had irregular Periods almost my entire life. I am 27 years old. I have been to many gynos - they usually look at me (I have been lean my entire life) and ask me to work on my diet and dismiss me. Some prescribed some BC pills. But until lately no one has checked if i have PCOS. I do not have any symptoms of PCOS except for the severe hair fall, not sure if its even related. However my derm told me i have Androgenetic Alopecia 3rd stage.

    Can someone pls help me with this?

    P.S - i have never been on BC for long periods. At the most i have taken them continuously for 7 days.

    It sound like it is unlikely that you have PCOS without any of the other symptoms. Are you taking any meds to treat hair loss such as estrogen or androgen blockers?

    Deirdre,
    I was just curious, is PCOS something you either have or you don't or is it something that has to be continiously checked for throughout your life, like maybe you develop it later?
    thanks

    Nope. I am just on Rogaine and multivitamin pills. I went to a new gyno last week and she put me on Yasmin for next 3 months.

    Thanks for the reply Deirdre

    Hey! Did the Yasmin help the hair loss? I am also a lean woman and I have irregular periods. I’m slender but my BMI is in the normal range 18.5-19.

    I had totally irregular periods until after my first child was born. I found out I was pregnant by seeing a doctor about spotting. I am very thin also. Wonder if there is a connection?
