Oops! (insert laughing emoji here) I answered “No, I have not had symptoms of PCOS”. This is absolutely true because I am male. Ha-ha. I should have answered “This health issue does not apply to me”, which is also true.

I’m in between answers on this one. In my 20s I regularly experienced spotting at 2 weeks into my otherwise very regular monthly cycles. OBGYN thought I could have PCOS from over treating my diabetes with insulin. I believe his rationale was that higher than normal insulin levels in blood from injection could be affecting my other hormones. My endocrinologist disagreed with the diagnosis based on my low weight, insulin sensitivity and absence of other symptoms. I took oral birth control pills for a while which resolved.
The question, as written is very misleading! No, I have not been diagnosed with PCOS. I am not familiar with the symptoms of this, so I really do not know if I have any. Please reword, or explain what the symptoms are before asking in this manner.
A littler confusing, the main question is “Have you been diagnosed” and the No answer is about having symptoms of PCOS.
If you have T1D, have you ever been diagnosed by a health care provider with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)? Cancel reply

Had a full hysterectomy in 2006, so I don’t have ovaries anymore.
