TTC With PCOS

TTC With PCOS

Trying to conceive with PCOS I had regular periods up until November and now need progesterone. I'm on clomid cycle 1, but I'm not sure when/ if my fertile window is.

Do I Do A Pregnancy Test Like A Doctor Suggested?

Do I Do A Pregnancy Test Like A Doctor Suggested?

I keep on having pains in both my left and right sides of my tummy
I did have a pain across the bottom of my tummy, but it went away not long after I'd done an econsult for my doctors
The doctor had texted me to say that they think I should do a pregnancy test, which for some reason made me laugh, but I don't know if its because of the shock of the doctor suggesting that I do one or because I know that my pcos (which I'd mentioned in my econsult and that the doctor would've known about if… read more

Is There A Possibility That My Pcos Is Becoming Insulin Resistant Or Is It Low Blood Sugar Levels?

Is There A Possibility That My Pcos Is Becoming Insulin Resistant Or Is It Low Blood Sugar Levels?

I currently have adrenal pcos but with my current symptoms right now could this mean that it's changing? My body has been shaking, my heart rate goes up, I feel weak and tired all the time.

Eating Disorder Relationship With PCOS

Eating Disorder Relationship With PCOS

When I first was diagnosed with PCOS I was already struggling with an eating disorder from being in modeling. I now have no appetite ever it feels like and I can go days without thinking about or wanting food. When I do eat I get super nauseous. I guess what I’m wondering is does anyone else feel this way and how do they combat it?
