Hello ladies :)

As part of my psychology degree I need to carry out my own experiment and I would like to do something about PCOS.
I am considering doing something about how PCOS has influenced or changed your identity.
Do you feel like your diagnosis has influenced or changed your identity?

Any help would be great.
Thank you everyone.

I think having the side effects of pcos can damage you mentally to a degree, I know when I was having issues with bad facial hair, I had very low self esteem so it does affect you (even though it is seen as cosmetic unfortunately). There is a link between PCOS and depression as well so I think the side effects of pcos can cause depression and low mood generally as well.
