In brief: Need more info

In about half of the women who have PCOS, the ovaries do not show cysts on ultrasound.
While hirsutism is often a sign of excess male hormones, the hallmark of PCOS, most women also have irregular periods. You should probably consult with an endocrinologist who will want to measure some hormone levels and might recommend treatment to lower testosterone production

In brief: Blood test

There are some tests the GYN can run for PCOS.
Do confirm that and they can guide you for further care.
