Dilation And Curettage (D&C)

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

Different Types Of PCOS

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?

Cold Like Symptoms Before Period?

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...

Reduce caffeine, gluten, dairy and acidic foods in your diet.

Abnormal Bleeding !

Abnormal Bleeding !

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,
Monica

Who Takes Inositol?

Who Takes Inositol?

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?

Have Any Of You Been Diagnosed With Endometrial Hyperplasia?

Have Any Of You Been Diagnosed With Endometrial Hyperplasia?

It is rare in women under 35 however, upon receiving the diagnosis yesterday I have learned that it PCOS have much higher chance of developing it. Also women w/PCOS who develop Complex Hyperplasia w/Atypia are at a approx. 50% higher risk for developing endometrial cancer (scientific studies varied on the exact percentage). Anyway, while I wait for my appointment with the gyno oncologist I just wondered if any of you have been through this and what your journey had been like.

No Periods

No Periods

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?

Ovasitol

Ovasitol

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.

Thanks,

Nicole

Theres a local company that makes 600mg capsules so I take 2. For me it's better than having to drink all that powder. Not TTC… read more
