Hey there! I found out I had PCOS this past spring, my final surgery was just over two years ago at that point. I had C-Diff in January so I thought I had stomach problems but NOPE! the pain was due to the cysts.
I had an IUD, which can cause more cysts, so avoid that. Also I am doing the shot now because the gyno was concerned I would not absorb birth control pills normally, which not only prevent pregnancy but help prevent cysts by regulating your hormones. Shot does the same thing but is obviously absorbed better than the pill!
Hope this helps a bit, took me about a year to figure out my problems weren't only in my intestines.
