    what could this possibly be?

    Please help !!! This problem has been going on for about a year or more. I am 43 years old. I have a rather large growth just inside my vaginal opening (i can feel it if I insert a finger slightly inside) about the size of a golf ball. It does not hurt, but the size worries me.

    More recently I've been missing periods. I've gone 50+ days without a period twice now in the last six months. I've gained a ton of weight without any change in my diet. Matter of fact I'm eating LESS and being very strict about fat content, calories, sugar, etc...and also trying to stay active. My hair is falling out, I have horrific acne on my face, and am getting very depressed about this whole situation. I have done multiple pregnancy tests thinking that may be it. However, my boyfriend has had a vasectomy and every preg test I take is negative. Every time. I have a history of diabetes in my family and did develop gestational diabetes with my son, who is 8 years old. I just read a few articles about PCOS and was wondering if this could possibly be what is going on? I have no health insurance and beginning to get very nervous and really scared. Anybody who can offer any advice I would deeply appreciate any feedback. Thank you.
