Dilation And Curettage (D&C)
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

can they this and also remove a 6cm cyst on an ovary?

A myPCOSteam Member

A D&C cleans the inside of your uterus out. If they were to remove a cyst they would have to preform a cystectomy and they will usually do that as laparoscopic procedure.

Different Types Of PCOS
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I have been off my birth control for 9 months now and I would still go months without a period. After months of no period I would have one light for a month or two. In most cases I've read about people don't have them at all. i have never hear of anyone having longer periods. Is there anyone else like this? Also, have you found that other women in your family struggled with PCOS.

Cold Like Symptoms Before Period?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone else get cold like symptoms before their period comes? I noticed this the first cycle I had since being on metformin, and I'm wondering if that means this is about to happen again...
Its like a stuffy nose, headache, head cold. I feel sick (not nauseous, but like i'm coming down with something), and sooo tired. This happened right before I got my first period on metformin (for like a week). I'm hoping this isn't going to happen every time...

Who Takes Inositol?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I've been reading about inositol, and the benefits for women with PCOS or severe Anxiety. I'm wondering who takes inositol and how it has worked or not worked for you. I'm also wondering if you did or didn't talk to your doctors about it first?

A myPCOSteam Member

I’ve been taking Ovasital which has helped so much!!! It’s myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol. The research and study group had the best response to the combination and 40:1 ratio this supplement has.

Has Anyone Had A D&C? Any Kind Words Or Advice To Help Prepare Me For It?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Before I go back on birth control, the doctor wants to do a D&C to check on my built-up lining. I am nervous for this surgery. It will be my first surgery, and I am scared of anesthesia due to PTSD.

A myPCOSteam Member

Hi there. So, I did have a D&C during a surgery I had for parapelvic cysts. They just did the D&C at the same time because I had a cyst on my uterus so they took care of it. I was under so I didn't… read more

You can drink Alkaline powder (A Vogel make one in South Africa) not sure who would make it where you are.
Reduce caffeine, gluten, dairy and acidic foods in your diet.

Abnormal Bleeding !
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hello Everyone!

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?

Thank you,

A myPCOSteam Member

Take medroxy progesterone when you start bleeding. It helps me.

No Periods
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A myPCOSteam Member

Same. I have to take medroxy progesterone pills because I get tired of the on going break through bleeding. If I do have a natural one it's like once a year if that. I noticed after using birth… read more

Trying To Make A Decision -any Advise?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

So I had been on the pill for a decade and noticed my hair was thinning. With PCOS I was always too scared to get off the pill, but then starting thinking the pill was causing my hair to fall out so I decided to take a break as well as my ferritin (iron storage was low). One year on my hair has fallen out much worse! I started taking iron tablets, now on fish oil and vista in d and hair supplements. But given it’s gotten worse I went back to doctor to get my hormone levels checked now that my… read more
