My Dr would like me to try Saxenda on a low dose and has arranged for me to try a sample. She said it is for weightloss and will definitely help me lose weight and help with sugar cravings as it changes and corrects your metabolism.

I have been diagnosed PCOS for almost 6 years. Since then I have had severe, dark and coarse hair pretty much all over me that I can never really deal with. I also have to shave my face every day, sometimes a couple times a day. I’m terrified that my boyfriend will not find me attractive anymore and leave me due to this side effect of the disease. How did you let your significant others in on it? Any tips on how to handle this problem?
