“Hey you guys, for some of you this may be TMI, but for me, my platform has always been used for things much greater than me. Polycystic Ovarian syndrome has been attacking me from the inside out my entire life and I had no idea.

Keke went on to detail her visible symptoms and severe acne. “My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed. I tried EVERYTHING. I did Accutane TWICE. People say drink water, have a better diet, but I did all that, I ate all the ‘right’ things, my blood tests were fine. But it took ME taking a personal look into my family that has a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what was ACTUALLY happening with me. And unfortunately, doctors are people and if you don’t ‘look the part’ they may not think that’s your problem. They may not even suggest it if you ‘look healthy’ whatever that means! I came to a doctor in tears once and all they offered was a measles vaccine. Exactly.”


“This especially makes me sad because my family struggled for years and no doctor could help them, they actually mislead them and just took their money. It’s only because of what my family sacrificed that allows me to even have the resources to share the information I’m sharing with you! Their fight out of poverty gave me a better life and I just want to share what I learn 🙏🏾”

Keke however stated that none of the symptoms is slowing her down. “The least harmful thing PCOS can bring is acne. To all the people struggling with this please know you’re not alone and that you are still so fucking fine! MY ACNE AINT NEVER STOPPED ME. But we don’t have to accept this. Now I can really help KEKE! And I love her so it’s ON.”

Keke Palmer ended on an encouraging note: “Pray for me on this journey and I will pray for you too. I’m not afraid to show myself to the world and you shouldn’t be either ❤️”. She wrote.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder where levels of reproductive hormones such as estrogen and testosterone are imbalanced. It can trigger a wide range of symptoms, including (but not limited to) irregular periods, migraines, and facial hair growth. Other symptoms include weight gain, insulin resistance, painful periods, ovarian cysts, and fertility problems. PCOS affects as many as one in 10 women, and is the leading cause of infertility in the United States, according to the National Institutes of Health.
