Does anyone else experience pain after being turned on?

I am struggling ( as we all are ) with the fact that without even having sex, just becoming aroused causes pain the next day. . Do any other of us have this experience? And how do you cope ?

Testosterone levels?

I just had my bloodwork done and my total testosterone level was flagged high at 65. But when I start going down the Google rabbit hole, it says that under 80 is normal. Does 65 confirm a PCOS diagnosis?? I'm confused ;)

What's a good but not expensive diet plan?

I want to lose weight before I try fertility medication. I was on metformin but they upped the dose because 1000mg wasn't working and I can't do it. 1500mg was too much for me especially with my type of job. So I want to try healthy eating ro help with weight loss. Any tips?

Any advice on dealing with dark underarms?

I've always be self conscious of my dark underarms. I wax them which helps with the darkness a little bit but not enough for me to feel completely comfortable wearing anything sleeveless. Any advice on how to lighten them? (preferably naturally)

frequent urination

Good morning Everyone

Just wondering if anyone knows if PCOS could be the cause of my frequent urination?
I had my bladder checked & it was a normal test, however I urinate so frequently during the day & I have even had an incident of bed wetting which was the most frustrating & embarrassing time ever however I don't feel anything once I fall asleep. Just wondering if this could be related to the PCOS
