How do I lose this weight and acne!! Please help
Day 3 of keto! Any suggestions?
I’m 27 years old I keep asking to be tested see if I have PCOS bc my GYN thinks have this PCOS but he says it hard to test for it. Before they put me on birth control I did not periods. I would like to have a baby one day with partner and he wants kids. I’m scared what he is going thing of me when I can’t have children. He already know I might not be able have kids.
Hello, please help... I need to know if a birth control dose can affect someone quickly (have an impact the same night you took it) or do you only get effects of birth control after taking it over a longer period of time? I went off my birth control and did not take it for about 2 months. A new doctor advised me to restart it, so I took one pill last night, and it just so happens that last night is when I had my psychological symptoms worsen (insomnia, getting annoyed to the point where people around me could notice). I overslept more than usual. And today I have been having on and off crying fits (even during class when nothing is going wrong), increased stress for no reason, a headache serious enough that I needed to take my headache prescription, and again more irritability towards everyone. It seemed "random" to me, until I realized "Hmmmmm, it just so happens that this is happening to me after I restarted my birth control...... 🙃" sooo, is there a connection to the birth control? I didn't think it could impact my emotions that fast, so maybe it could be other factors, but it just seems too coincidental to me??
Hey, just wanted some advice from fellow PCOS sufferers. Um... How do you make it through extreme period mood swings where everything sets you off and you feel sick of the world thanks to the intense emotional and physical turmoil going on inside of you? I feel terrible today. And please don't suggest birth control.
anyone know how you differentiate between ovulation pain and normal pcos pain? I normally don't ovulate at all but am working to start. how will I know?
Hello, I was wondering if anyone with PCOS and/or other hormonal issues find this weird? My doctor is saying I don't have PCOS anymore, suspects it's endometriosis but says I need diagnostic surgery for her to confirm it, and told me my only options are "birth control or pain." I was on a birth control that stopped my period, but while I was on the birth control, I suddenly had my period after almost a year without it. Also when my period suddenly came back, I had a cyst rupture while on the birth control, and the reason I was put on the birth control to begin with was to stop developing cysts since one cyst I had was so large it needed to be surgically removed. I then stopped taking the birth control. I'm having painful periods and my doctor says that's proof that I don't have PCOS anymore. This confused me, because I used to always hear that PCOS is incurable, but she told me a syndrome is a collection of symptoms, so when you stop having symptoms, you no longer have the syndrome, and a symptom of PCOS would be not getting my period anymore. However, I do get other PCOS symptoms, and have imbalanced hormone levels both on and off birth control, and have tried multiple types of birth control over the course of 6 years. I asked the doctor if I have any other options besides birth control and she told me my only other option is to be in pain. Also she wants to do surgery on me to see if it's endometriosis but I am scared of surgery, even minor surgery, and we literally never even talked about the possibility of me having endometriosis before until this last visit with her. Any advice or opinions about this situation, please? Thank you.
I could do with some advice/opinions/experiences please... Basically I have always steered clear of relationships, because of the side effects of PCOS. In particular the excess hair. But I’ve found myself and a close friend have started to see each other as a lot more than friends. I’ve never told anyone about these particular symptoms. I’m just looking for advice, reassurance, anything really in bringing the subject up with him. I’ve never accepted it in myself, so why would he? How soon did you ladies bring up such topics? Too soon and I could come across as the weirdo I feel like, but too late and I come across as someone who has been misleading him. He’s beginning to think about introducing me to his parents, and I’m starting to think about introducing him to this unpleasant topic.. I’ve never told anyone before, and it’s making me really anxious
Hi, I am really needing some help. I am currently 21 years of age. I was diagnosed with PCOS and Endometrios with I was 12 years old age. I always struggled with my weight I have always fallen under the obese category. Currently I am really struggling with my weight, I am gaining it like CRAZY. I really need some help on how to lose the weight. I have a really busy schedule and I am always moving. I just don’t understand why I am gaining the weight when I am getting more active. Just REALLY need HELP. Thank you
I hate how isolating chronic illnesses are, I currently suffer from 3. And today I have been in bed in pain for most of it, I listen to my family laughing and having fun in the lounge room and it’s upsetting how I can’t join in. And how I can feel that people don’t believe it’s as bad as I make it out to be, and I have to convince or justify my actions. 😓 Not a great day. 🤦🏻♀️
Does anyone when they have their periods get migranes, sickness , nausea and have upset stomach? I'm at the end of my period and been feeling like this the last day and a half.
Hello, I'm in big need of advice. How can I handle a spike in bad mood symptoms? I can kind of predict when they come and was doing my best to manage them. However, my mom is incredibly annoying and always plays the "Well, I have it worse!" game with her symptoms. She guilt trips me about not helping her more when I'm suffering ovary pain because she's had to live with her pain longer. Then when I try to help her she says she has too much dignity to accept my help even when I go through the effort of cooking for her. And like I mentioned before I already know I am going to be in a bad mood but even when I try to control myself I feel absolutely terrible and "insane" like I'm not sure whether to be angry, depressed, mad at myself for being such a failure or mad at my mom for being such a b**** and tearing down my mood, or what. I feel cursed by my PCOS.
Hey Everyone. @cala-maria just joined the group. Please join me in welcoming them and introducing yourself here!
This last week my periods have been on and off all week and today is what my first or second day should be . I'm going through thick pads and period pants like crazy. I went to my chemist/ pharmacy to ask for advice they said just take pain killers but I'm getting big blood clots when use the toilet and the stomach cramps as unreal . I take medication for the heaviness but this is the worst I've had it in a long time. Does anyone else get anything similar?

Hi everyone, I’m new here. I was diagnosed with pcos at 12 years old. In 2002, the only treatment doctors told me was available was birth control. I was on birth control for years. In my experience, there has not been proper help or information. I’ve had to do a lot of research on my own. Found great women doctors who could actually listen to me. Now 31, pcos is very much apart of me. The mood swings can be unbearable at times and cysts are just a part of me.
I was just told that women have one job in this world and it is to reproduce babies and if a woman can’t have children then why would a man marry her. It was heartbreaking to hear. I think women who have been diagnosed with PCOS may think that they are “damaged goods” and some may very well question their own womanhood. However, I want to remind you, and myself, that we are strong real women. We deserve to be respected, loved and valued. PCOS can be challenging but we got this!
Hello my name is Ashley, I am 23 and haven’t been diagnosed with PCOS yet, I have suspected having it for almost 10 years, but no doctor has listed to me nor tested me like I have asked... my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years (3 years in December 2021) and have gone through a miscarriage. I’m needing someone to talk to for support or questions or advise for the next steps! Thank y’all😊
