Many people with PCOS develop it when they start going through puberty. However, they mistake PCOS symptoms, such as severe acne, irregular periods, and increased weight gain for normal signs of puberty. However, some people develop PCOS later in their life according to the Office on Women’s Health. Even if they had children easily in the past, they can develop PCOS later in their life and start to have a problem conceiving. They can also mistake the same symptoms of PCOS as a sign that menopause is coming soon. This is why it is important to go to your gynecologist to take pelvic exams and pap smears yearly to make sure that your reproductive system is healthy.
