A 19-year-old female asked:

Can pcos cause an overactive bladder? i've never had a transvaginal ultrasound but my doctors think i have pcos because of hirsutism, acne, and painful periods. i've had the overactive bladder since i was little?

PCOS and overactive bladder are both fairly common ailments and thus can co-exist. You report having had an overactive bladder since early childhood and thus existed before PCOS could have had any effect on your bladder. My sympathies.
