Beginner Searching For Help

Hi! I am new to this app, I have been on a similar app for my lupus and the community helped me so much, I didn’t know there was one for pcos.

I also have been put on birth control since I was 16. All my hormone levels are within normal range. I mostly just get cysts and irregular periods with symptoms. I… read more

Can Putting Hair Texturizer In My Hair Make My PCOS Symptoms Worse?

Can Putting Hair Texturizer In My Hair Make My PCOS Symptoms Worse?

Hello, I've been using my Dyson Airwrap for a few months. It blows out my hair pretty well and makes my hair feel very soft. The problem is that it never makes my hair silky straight. Sometimes my hair looks like it is straight and then it curls up again. I've tried the John Frieda Serum and cream that is supposed to make my hair silky straight. It just isn't working out well.

My Mom keeps saying that I should put a texturizer in my hair so my hair can stay straight and not curl up so fast. I… read more

How To Reverse Adrenal Pcos?

Hiya ladies some of you know that I recently learnt that I have adrenal pcos. So my question is how can I reverse it?
