Help Conceiving With No Period

Help Conceiving With No Period

Hi, I was diagnosed with PCOS about 6 years ago. I had been on the pill since I was 14 and showed no symptoms until I came off the pill at 28. I haven’t had a period since and started showing symptoms as in acne, hair loss and excess body hair. The doctors answer to this was to put me back on the pill however I have since stopped taking this in the hope of getting pregnant. Has anyone had any experience of trying to conceive with no period at all? And do you know is there anything… read more

Any Whole Food Recipes?

I am on no Gluten, no dairy no added sugars and watching other ingredients but I am so damn tired of eating salad and the same meals every night.

Faint Positive Pregnancy Test Then It Comes Negative

Faint Positive Pregnancy Test Then It Comes Negative

So I took a pregnancy test on Monday because I didn't have my period, it comes out a very faint positive line but you can clearly see it..
I really wanted to verify it by doing one again, I had to go to the store to buy a new one, when I took it it was negative..
It's been 5 days still hasn't got my period, but I'm starting to think I'm just irregular.
Has someone experienced this?

Possible Pituitary Issue?

Possible Pituitary Issue?

My 22 year old daughter was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago. Her hormones were all out of wack so she was put on Metformin and started getting her periods again, but then it stopped. Her endocrinologist had her take blood tests and it showed my daughter is not producing estrogen so she increased the Metformin and is running additional tests. She said it could be a pituitary issue and mentioned doing an internal sonogram to check the ovaries in addition to possibly doing an MRI. I… read more

Best Ways To Lose Weight?

Hello everyone!
I am sooo ready to loose some weight! I am on metformin but I have never seen a different in my weight even when I changed my diet and was exercising more often.

I have seen my school nutritionist but I kinda learned all she had to offer there for my condition. I am open to ideas. For the the… read more
