So I have been trying to lose weight recently and I have failed quite miserably. It turns out I have been eating the wrong foods.
I have done quite a bit of research and I found some quite helpful pages. I know I'm not alone in the food department so I thought I'd give you lovely ladies an insight to what to eat and what to avoid.
Foods to add:
1. High fiber vegetables (cauliflower, peppers, almonds, berries, sweet potato)
2. Lean protein (chicken, fish, tofu)
3.… read more
Has anyone tried Ovasitol? It claims to be "a high quality, medical-grade supplement that combines both myo and d-chiro-inositol that mimic’s the body’s own ratio" and boasts it will " improve insulin sensitivity, restore hormone balance, improve ovulation and egg quality in women with PCOS."
I just ordered some and have yet to try it. Simply looking for feedback. Any reviews from your own personal experience with it would be greatly appreciated.
I have had at least 7 of my close friends announce their pregnant within the past month and i want a child so bad, so deep down it hurts me because i haven't been lucky, ever... but then i feel selfish and like a bad friend because i should be happy for them.. Also because I'm throwing 2 of my friends their baby showers, which I'm excited about. I just get mixed feelings. Especially when I'm by myself.. :( what has helped yall with these feelings or anything to do… read more
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.
I know that its normal for hair to change over our lifetimes, but in just a few short years my hair transitioned from mostly straight to incredibly curly and unruly. I read a study that claimed testosterone can change the shape of the hair follicles. Anyone else go through this?
I saw that there is more than one type of PCOS and I'm really confused. I read another post but I don't have diabetes which the post said is what type 1 is. Is there a group or page that shows what symptoms are in type 1 and type 2 instead of people saying what the differences are? I am doing my research so I can make sure I am asking the right questions to my primary care doctor or when I get an OB/GYN. I only got diagnosed last year and was given birth control and spironolactone was… read more

I struggle with my weight so badly. It's frustrating I eat small portions, exercise, and eat mostly non- processed food, I don't know what else to do I lost a bunch and then gained it all back and then some and I didn't do anything differently. I've also had 6 miscarriages. I'm so frustrated with my body and even with antidepressants I feel suicidal. People are so mean to me because of my weight and try as I might I just keep going up. I was on metformin and it made… read more
My question is only slightly related to PCOS.
Being artsy, craving that sense of community, and suffering from anxiety and depression, I have found that striving to keep my social media positive actually helps me to encourage myself- Just like my blog gives me a space to capture my journeys in a way that not only helps encourage others but helps me to process. I think that connecting with others on Instagram, Snapchat, and those who have blogs- whether your social media is all… read more
