I was diagnosed at age 21 when my periods became incredibly irregular and I gained 70 pounds in one year without a change in lifestyle.  In fact I had pretty much every symptom except male pattern baldness and infertility (we found out later that this was a problem for me as well when we started trying to have a baby).  Having this has profoundly changed me and has affected my life in so many ways.  There is no cure, only ways to manage symptoms.  It is still under- and mis-diagnosed a lot.  I just wanted to spread a little awareness.
