"I had loads of blood tests done a few weeks ago because I was getting irregular periods, I was getting really bad PMT, I was getting really cyst-y spots and really bad skin. And I was finding it hard to lose weight, even though I was eating healthily.

"Loads of reasons, really - and I found out last week that that's why."
