My hormones are balanced but I still deal with hirsutism on a daily basis. So much so that I shave (my face) every day, if not twice a day.

Anyone else NEVER get a period?
I only do when I take Provera.
I have already tried Metformin, Vitex, weight loss, exercise, clean eating. Still have never had a cycle on my own.
I just started taking inositol, so I'll give that a shot for a few months to see if that helps at all. Any other ideas? Is there anything you have been able to do to naturally get a period?
I went 9 years with out a period. i was on birth control for most of that. I got my tubes tied back in December because I decided one kid was enough for me. after 4.5 months I went to an appointment… read more
Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?
I have had the same issue and I am so frustrated with my uterus. I have tried almost everything… tranexemic acid first, then oral BC, now and IUD which only reduced the bleeding a bit but now I am… read more
I was diagnosed with PCOS at 13. I always wanted to be a mother and never having ovulated despite multiple meds, surgeries and treatments, didn’t change my circumstance. Honestly I was severely… read more
So I was just diagnosed with PCOS on my birthday March 30th. Today I had my follow up appointment and was basically told I'm fat and need to loose weight. I haven't been given any medication to help with my symptoms and was referred to a specialist. I have always struggled with diets and exercising. Has anyone found something they liked to help them lose weight that might help me?
I started Keto 4 months ago, which I have modified a bit, but still eat low carb and high protein/fat. Also very low sugar items. I’ve lost 30 lbs in the last 4 months 😁.
Same here 💙
My older sister also has PCOS and has been taking Metformin. She says it works and has been helping her with symptoms including losing weight. Any more recommendations? Tips/advice? Other alternatives?
I’ve been on it for about a year now. I’ve lost a lot of inches but not pounds according to the scale. It’s been well worth it.

I feel so alone. No-one I know has PCOS and my doctors are useless
I was diagnosed in April 2015 and was given very little information about it and was told to lose weight to manage it, I've done various different diets/ life style changes and nothing ever happens, I lose a bit and then gain it back again. I've seen a dietitian and she's looked through a food diary and asked me how I cook my food and she can't see anything wrong with the way I eat. I walk a lot of places, I love walks, but… read more
My fatigue is so bad I am struggling to stay awake all the time. It does not seem to matter how many hours I sleep. I usually have a headache. Sometimes so severe that I will have distorted vision or no vision in one eye usually for a few hours. I don’t know how much longer I can keep up with life while dealing with this fatigue. I welcome any suggestions.
