can they this and also remove a 6cm cyst on an ovary?
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.
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.
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...
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?
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.
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
Ever since ive gained weight from pcos I have the worst acid reflux. I take Omeprazole for the pain but i know i shouldnt be on it for long its very dangerous but man that pain is no joke. What do some of you ladies do about it naturally?
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.
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?
Take medroxy progesterone when you start bleeding. It helps me.
I have prolonged menstrual periods that go on for months as long as 10 months stop for about 3 weeks and back to bleeding some days are abnormal heavy bleeding but mostly lighter days but always non stop
Anyone else NEVER get a period?
I only do when I take Provera.
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?
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
