It's becoming more commonly diagnosed, yes.
I went to the doctor when I was a teen because I was only getting it occasionally...they didn't mention a word about PCOS or any possibility of it. They said because I could get period regularly on birth control, it not being regular wasn't any cause for concern. With some internet searches I suspected it though. I just pursued this last year because I hadn't had a period in over a year, and was "officially" diagnosed with PCOS.
