Hello, I have PCOS and I'm doing a research paper on PCOS for my English Class and was wondering if there's anyone on the medical staff that could answer some questions? I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 21 years old and I'm now 40 years old. It's hard to lose weight, become pregnant (given up on that), the missed periods, insulin resistance and my list go on. So when we were given the option to write a research paper on an issue that means the most to us, I picked PCOS. Not many people out… read more
I believe healthy lifestyle can inprove PCOS. I have seen many successful pregnancy cases with PCOS just by natural care.
I have had PCOS for approximately 3 years. In between these 3 years I've have maybe 2 periods (random spotting inbetween the count of this is unknown but a lot). I just started a period 2 weeks ago. My last period was May of 2018 and it was normal and lasted about 7-9 days or so and wast super heavy, just normal. However, this period IS SO HEAVY and I have been clotting a lot. Its to the point i cannot wear tampons because the clots stop from my flow and im having to change my Tampon almost… read more

My mood swings da worse I been aggressive snapping, have attitude then 😭😭😭😭😭 & it all ova place!!! I been using Hot water bottle for pain barely helping & can barely walk!! Don't nobody understand or care!!! I'm tired I have 30 long term health conditions & it super hard & frustrating @ almost 24 in couple months!!! Need help/advice!!!
I use a heating pad when I’m in pain. I get pain in my lower back, butt, and pelvis.
Does anyone have sudden pressure or jolts of pain in their ovaries? It doesn't happen every five minutes. But, it also affects my lower back as well.
Not all the time, but I've had days kinda like that... Wish I understood more, but everything you find googling only applies so much when you have to take the PCOS into account
I keep getting a weird pulling type pain in the lower part of my tummy and like a tugging type sensation in my lady parts (it's the only thing I can call it as I can't spell the correct word for my lady parts). It started either yesterday morning or evening. I took two 30/500 co-codamol capsules last night, which eased the pain enough for me to fall asleep, but the pains have come back again, but I don't have a clue what has triggered the pains.
Any ideas of what it could be?
Ok, so I went for my annual physical last week. I told the doctor I get stomach pains in my lower abdomen. And I get a period once every 4 months. But he noticed my lower legs and feet were swollen. He said it was edema. I was like "huh?" So he tested me for kidney, liver and heart function. Ok so now I'm worried. I never had this. But tomorrow will be a week since my visit...so if there was anything serious they would call right? I googled lower leg edema and I got scared. I saw it has to do… read more
Yesterday I went to the doctors about the pains I have in what I can only describe as my ovaries. I have had these pains for quite some time now and they come and go. A bit like period pains but without the period as I haven't had one since December. The doctor said that PCOS doesn't cause pain, but I disagree.. doctors know best tho right? Does anyone have this problem or is it something I should be worried about?
