How can I get diagnosed??

Hi guys, let me tell you a bit about my story and where I'm at today.

Blood clots

So I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, the doctor didn’t really go into much detail on what it was and all that, Thank goodness I kinda had an idea before hand. She just put me on birth control. This is my first month on it and I just started my period but it is super heavy and I’m passing a lot of blood clots. I have had blood clots before but not like this accompanied with really bad cramps. Is that normal?

Does anyone else get so exhausted they pass out as soon as they get home?

Despite trying a normal sleep schedule and eating healthier, I feel fatigue hard. I came home today and as soon as I sat down fell asleep. All day I was light headed and had a headache. Does anyone have any advice for helping this? I’m not on any medications at the moments and I’ve been trying to eat fruit for breakfast, a light lunch, and a protein dinner (like chicken and broccoli.) Everything I see online says to change lifestyle habits… read more

I would suggest have a protein with breakfast and after lunch have a snack that includes a protein and a healthy fat.

Does overwight>IR>PCOS or does PCOS>IR>overweight?

So, I’m not sure if people know how PCOS develops, but was it like that being overweight led to insulin resistance which led to pcos, or did I have pcos that led the insulin resistance that led to me being overweight. I’m just confused how this condition works tbh
