Frankie Bridge Reveals PCOS Diagnosis In Instagram Video
The singer, 31, from The Saturdays fame, revealed she had been suffering from irregular periods, strong PMT symptoms and unusual breakouts.
Deciding to get her symptoms looked at, Frankie went to her doctor for blood tests which revealed her diagnosis.
"I've just found out actually that I've got polycystic ovaries," the mum-of-two explained to her 1.2 million followers on Instagram Stories.
"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."

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how women's ovaries work. One in ten women in the UK are thought to have it.
While Frankie revealed she doesn't have the most severe case of PCOS, she did ask for tips on how to deal with it.
"It goes on different scales, so I'm not on top of the scale, [I'm] quite near the bottom but it just kind of really explains everything," she said.
She went on to ask: "If anyone out there suffers from polycystic ovaries... any tips?"
