I just want to explain my situation and see if anyone is in or has been in a similar situation??? Any replies would be most appreciated :-)
I took the pill from age 18 and stopped last August when I reached 30 with the intention to give my body the chance to get back to normal before trying for a baby.
Since August I have had periods but my cycle has been getting longer and longer, I am now up to approx 45/55 days between periods.
The last six months or so I have started to suffer with a constantly red and spoty nose and cheeks. I have self diagnosed early rosacea from trawling the web and a consultation with a Clinique consultant.
I went to the Dr last week to discuss my cycle expecting some reassurance but instead I have been referred for tests.
I had a blood test on Wednesday, the form had 4 different codes on which I wish I had written down now so I could research what exactly they are testing for!
I have an ultrasound appointment on 4th July.
My Dr suggested PCOS and I am grateful I am being checked out so quickly but it is a worry. I goggled PCOS and Rosacea wondering if there might be a link and found this website. I think I will be visiting often!
I am 31 in August and ALL my friends are either pregnant and/or have babies.
Hope to get some replies with peoples experiences and thoughts on my case...
