Patient :Hi i am having concerns about my reproductive health, that i realized when talking to a friend with PCOS who thinks i may have something similar. i want to know if it is worth getting a blood test for my sex hormones for this or not - i am often mistaken as a man when i am a woman, my periods are incredibly irregular ( spaced between 3 weeks to 3 months, with cycles that last 3-9 days long), i have a lot of body hair and hair growth on my upper lip. most worrying is that i recently found out from my female sex lecture is that the cervix is meant to be round and should be at the exact back of my vaginal canal, but mine is a teardrop shape with a taper end i can actually pinch, and starts around the middle of my canal. when i am aroused my clitoris can enlarge to a point where it looks like a "micro dick", without me actually touching it. i am worried about this because my mother who has the same but milder symptoms had complications in both pregnancies, while my aunt who has more prominent ones is completely infertile.
Symptoms: Large hair growth, irregular menstrual cycle, odd shaped genitalia
