What is PCOS?

(image source) I’ve been staring at this screen for days, trying to figure out how to begin, how to say what I want to say, and whether I should say it at all. Despite my hesitancy, I’ve decided it’s time to be open and honest, and talk about my recent diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)….
