    Default pcos short cycles.

    i'm 18 and was diagnosed with PCOS last year.
    My cycles have always been short usually around 21 days. So about 2 weeks or less between the end of my period and the start of my next period.

    i was wondering whether it is possible for me to be ovulating with such short cycles. i weigh 52kg and don't really have any of the other symptoms of PCOS. My hormone levels are characteristic of PCOS. lh to fsh ratio is really high. and i have 2x the normal amount of testosterone.

    Hello Emma,
    Itís very unlikely that you are ovulating. The reason for the bleed probably just a regular progesterone drop (common in PCOS).

    The best recommendation I can make to you as I see lots of young women being diagnosed with PCOS is to seek natural treatment. Nutrients and herbal medicines are a great way of bringing hormonal balance to the system. This is also a very useful way to help manage healthy cycles keeping you balanced and fertile for when you choose to start a family.

    The catch up any treatment is that it must be ongoing... and PCOS is a process of constant management. Iíve seen very good results with herbal medicines and also a modality called neuro-emotional technique. You may like to give it a try.

    Best wishes!
