PCOS Intersex Research

jamie-lee:
I know PCOS officially doesn't count, but if someone has male range testosterone, a micropenis, facial hair, deep voice, and looks like a dude, it's pretty dumb and beurocratic to say they're not intersex. Doctors can be idiots when it comes to things that carry emotional and social significance. Or maybe it's the patients who want to believe in lies in order to feel comfortable.

As for the actual process of PCOS diagnosis, I also think it's dubious, all you need is slightly more body hair and an irregular period. Also, what can be contributing to increased rates of PCOS is the epidemic of obesity, because it contributes to high LH.
