Insurance coverage

I recently was denied disability insurance coverage on my mortgage because of my PCOS

The insurance is supposed to cover my mortgage payments for 6 months in the event I cannot work, such as a car accident.

I am not sure how PCOS is relevant in the scheme of this .... does anyone else have any insight or experience with this?

Is there any link between Hodgkin's lymphoma and pcos?

I am just curious how the lymphatic system is affected by pcos and if anyone else had had Hodgkin's lymphoma on here? It probably isn't related but it would possibly help a lot of people if there is some correlation.

Has anyone tried Saxenda?

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.

She has tried it herself and lost weight while on it. She’s given me some pamphlets to read but I’m wondering if anyone else has tried it?

I don’t have a huge amount to lose (around 5-10kgs) but it won’t shift, no matter what I do. When I didn’t carry this… read more

Has anyone had Liposuction/BBL/ then gotten Pregnant?

I had been thinking about getting lipo/BBL for awhile and was reading information online. A lot of women that have had this procedure ended up pregnant right after getting it done. Has anyone experienced this? Does anyone know anyone that has?

Is it common or okay for us having PCOS to have Lipo done?
