My cycle came late at age 12 or 13. I was the last of all my friends. My cycle was never “normal”. At age 15 or so my Mama took me to the GYN and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I really liked that doc but the older I go I realized she described PCOS all wrong. I was under the impression I would NEVER be able to have kids without surgery or supplements.
