Does almost everyone with PCOS struggle with fertility,

Does almost everyone with PCOS struggle with fertility,

Has anyone had Weight loss surgery - VSG?

Has anyone had Weight loss surgery - VSG?

I recently had weight loss surgery (vsg- sleeve) on 7/23/19. I have only loss 16 lbs since that day. I am so disappointed and discouraged. At my 3 week checkup my doctor said I was on the lower end of the weight loss spectrum basically I should have loss more weight than that but I just feel as if my PCOS has a lot to do with it. Anybody else had vsg weight loss surgery and succeeded? I feel so alone. Any suggestions?

How do you know if you are ovulating

How do you know if you are ovulating when you don’t have periods at all. Last natural period was in April 3019 and I took medication to force my period in July and as of yet no period in August.
