I had a pelvic scan a year ago to check for ovarian cysts and I do have polycystic ovaries, but the hormone test came back normal so the doc said I don't have PCOS. She also told me I didn't really have any symptoms, as my periods were regular, my body hair wasn't 'excessive' and I'm a normal weight. Could they have been wrong? Or could I have developed PCOS since last year? I can also add that I was checked for diabetes 2 months ago and the test came back fine - if I had insulin resistance (one of my big PCOS concerns), wouldn't it have shown up there?
Another thing is that I was possibly exposed to some testosterone gel (the kind men who have had prostate cancer use to replace their testosterone) earlier this year - I used a roommate's (unwashed) comforter for a night (so 7-8 hours) before I realised he used that gel. It says on the box not to share bed linen with others if you use it, so this has been playing on my mind ever since. I did see the doctor about it last month and he laughed it off and told me I was fine, but could this have affected me?
Help! I'm so nervous and so bummed out about this new unwanted hair :(
