I have PCOS. Have had it for a few years. I am on Yaz, Metformin, and Spironolactone. My endocrinologist took me off the Yaz at my last appointment. He wants to run some tests to see if I have low estrogen. Does that mean I am menopausal? I am 34. Even with the medications I was still experiencing symptoms. Now I am wondering if my symptoms were not just PCOS symptoms. I am still having facial hair, mood swings, sweats/hot flashes. I have been off of the Yaz for about a week and am all wishy washy and emotional. I have other symptoms too, but those aren't new. I've had those all along too. no/low energy levels-all the time. Is there anything I could be doing other than medications? I don't want to take these meds the rest of my life.
