PCOS symptoms

Hi, I'm new to this website, but I feel like I just need to vent. I'm really scared that I can't get pregnant. I am 25 and I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years. We hardly use protection, besides the pull out method. And I know that is not even supposed to be that effective, and I am scared to go to the doctor because he might confirm that I can't conceive. I exhibit signs of PCOS, and I am pretty sure I have it, but at the time I don't have a job, so I don't have insurance. Last month, he didn't pull out on what is supposed to be the fertile window (exactly two weeks before my period came), and I told him I took plan B. But I didn't, because I wanted to see if I could get pregnant, and I didn't. So I am really worried, and I am too embarrassed to talk about it to anyone. My PCOS symptoms are excessive hair growth, heavy bleeding, my acne has gotten better, and I do have a period every month.

How would a doctor diagnose PCOS, like how many tests would she/he order and would anyone have an idea of how much it could all be without insurance?
