I feel as if someone is stabbing me to death in my pelvic area with each step I take. I have been experiencing this for over a year and it's awful, I have to limit my walking distance even in my own home and sit down often.
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?
I've been trying to create good remedies for insulin resistance and weight loss. I've never been able to find the perfect remedy for myself. I'm now on a consistent exercise schedule and I want to add more healthy things to my diet. I'm trying to start taking cinnamon more often. I wanted to focus on cinnamon tea or cinnamon water and see what kind of results I get.
I was curious to see if anyone on this site has a remedy that seems to have worked for them when it comes to… read more
I have received conflicting advice on HIIT (high intensity interval training) exercise. Most research on a population without PCOS shows it is very beneficial for metabolism and cardiovascular health. However, more of these PCOS dieticians or trainers say HIIT exacerbates PCOS symptom by putting the body under stress. They say that people with PCOS should not do HIIT.
Can anyone point me to a study of this in patients with PCOS?
What have your doctors told you about HIIT?

I've always struggled with my weight but now I'm in my 30s and was recently diagnosed with diabetes type 2 which is common in my family genes and this time I really want to become healthier I'm more determined than I've ever been and I could use advice... So my question is what kind of exercises and diets do you ladies do or have done to lose weight and keep it off
I recently went to the doctor, since I just got insurance through my job. Given my history with PCOS, they ran labs to test all my levels , in order to best treat and control my symptoms. I got the blood test back yesterday, and I was prescribed 3 medications for various symptoms I have. One of the medications is Metformin, and I was wondering what was y'all's experience with the medication. I have been kind of on edge thinking about having to take it, as I wont be able to get in until Monday.
What is the best form of exercise do you feel that works best for PCOS? I’ve been struggling so much with finding something to just get started.

Im getting ready to start a dairy amd gluten free diet and want to pair it with some good workouts.
Hi! I’ve been taking metformin (and a whole host of vitamins suggested by my OBGYN) for a couple of months now. I have also done a gradual but now complete overhaul on my diet within the last 3-4 months. I’ve reduced my sugar (especially added) and simple carb intake, been avoiding inflammatory foods, and have been drinking between 1/2-1 gallon of water daily. I’ve been eating mindfully and exercising somewhat regularly for fun and to relieve stress. I haven’t been watching the numbers too much… read more
