Will My Facial Hair Growth Reduce From Weight Loss?

Will My Facial Hair Growth Reduce From Weight Loss?

I have noticed that my facial hair grows back within the next day. Is this because of my weight gain and will it reduce when I lose weight? I can't even leave my house without having to shave as it's embarrassing.

Losing weight is one key, the other is vegetarian based diet. Positive is that with vegetarian diet it is much easier to manage the weight.

What Could Be Causing The Pain And Uncomfortable Feeling In My Tummy?

What Could Be Causing The Pain And Uncomfortable Feeling In My Tummy?

Hi ladies,
I was if anyone has ever had a pain that feels like someone or something is either trying squash or stretch your tummy area and it also feels like something is squashing your sides as well and making it difficult to get comfortable.
I have taken 2 30/500 co-codamol capsules for the pain, which goes away after a few mins after I've taken them.

Has Anyone Ever Had A Pain In Your Lower Tummy?

Has Anyone Ever Had A Pain In Your Lower Tummy?

I keep getting a weird pulling type pain in the lower part of my tummy and like a tugging type sensation in my lady parts (it's the only thing I can call it as I can't spell the correct word for my lady parts). It started either yesterday morning or evening. I took two 30/500 co-codamol capsules last night, which eased the pain enough for me to fall asleep, but the pains have come back again, but I don't have a clue what has triggered the pains.
Any ideas of what it could be?

Do I Need To Let My Key Worker On My Programme Know About My Pcos?

Do I Need To Let My Key Worker On My Programme Know About My Pcos?

Hi all
I had my first appointment with my key worker for the work and health programme yesterday and when she asked about my health conditions I told her all the ones I could remember, but I remembered earlier that I'd forgotten to tell her about my PCOS and I was wondering if I should tell her about it or not and if I should tell her in person or via email
The only reason I'm thinking of telling her by email is because she shares an office with another lady key worker and a male key worker. I… read more

Anyone Have Any Weight Loss Success With Metformin, Or Find Weight Loss A Little Easier?

Anyone Have Any Weight Loss Success With Metformin, Or Find Weight Loss A Little Easier?

Hi! I’ve been taking metformin (and a whole host of vitamins suggested by my OBGYN) for a couple of months now. I have also done a gradual but now complete overhaul on my diet within the last 3-4 months. I’ve reduced my sugar (especially added) and simple carb intake, been avoiding inflammatory foods, and have been drinking between 1/2-1 gallon of water daily. I’ve been eating mindfully and exercising somewhat regularly for fun and to relieve stress. I haven’t been watching the numbers too much… read more

How many cycles of the clomid have you done? My consultant said if I don’t fall on with 1 of these cycles it will be IVF.
I’m sorry it hasn’t worked for you up to press.
