Re: Can low supply be a genetic issue?

My mom was never diagnosed with PCOS and I don't think they had that diagnosis when my grandmother was around. I was, but while I had enormous cysts on the ultrasound a few years ago, they have shrunk to the point of disappearing since. I also appear to have some extra ducts that aren't clustered with the rest of my nipple but still work? I guess we'll see after my son is born. Thanks for the good news though!
