Get ALL the information before you do it. You can't undo surgery. A lot of places now a days, hold "seminars" about weight loss surgery.

How Do I Distract Myself From My Upcoming Hospital Appointments?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

On the 16th of Feb this year, I was taken to hospital in a taxi by my mum and my fiance as I had really bad stomach pains and I'd also been up all night being sick
I was discharged from the hospital on the 20th of Feb, but the doctor who came to see me said that I was going to be referred for an MRI scan and to see the gastro doctor
Both of my appointments are this month and I'm worried about what they're gonna find on my scan and what the gastro doctor is going to say to me.
I have a journal,… read more

Hair Lose
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hey there, I've had PCOS for a very long time now and I noticed that I'm loosing quite a bit of hair now for these last three years. I got to a point last year where I just starting freaking out over it and ever since then I'm not sure what I can do to help with this. I notice that I loose the most hair when I wash my hair which is why I wash it much less now cause I'm worried. Does anyone have any suggestions or meds to help with this.

Does rosemary oil help as well?

Thanks :)

Has anyone tried drinking green tea for hair loss? Some studies show that if you have elevated testosterone levels (which can make your hair fall out), green tea (which contains EGCG) can lower it.
