Dear Pdiddy

The diagnosis has to be made not only from your history but also from specialised investigations such as blood test ultrasound scanning. If you have a regular menstrual cycle and are definitely ovulating (as confirmed by ovulation testing) then it is unlikely that you suffer from this syndrome.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical examination, diagnosis and formal advice.
