I’m not Overweight can I still have PCOD/PCOS?

Yes. Up to 30% of women with PCOS/PCOD maintain a normal weight.These healthy-weight women still face fertility challenges, increased androgens, and the resulting symptoms (like acne, unwanted hair growth, hair loss, etc.), and an increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.Those with lean PCOS/PCOD have unique challenges and it’s important to understand what you can do to improve your quality of life and possibly lessen troublesome symptoms.PCOS/PCOD women may not be diagnosed until they struggle to conceive.The PCOS/PCOD diagnosis itself isn’t the only delayed diagnosis. There can also be delays in diagnosing diabetes and heart disease in lean women who have PCOS/PCOD.
