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 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

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
Does PCOS cause leg pain? My legs seem to be sore 85% of the time, goes from being a tired feeling to feeling like i just did a week of leg workouts.
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.
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?
Hi!!! I just got diagnosed friday PCOS. My doc prescribed me on spironolactone. I need to grab it from the pharmacy and start it.
Before i start i wanted to ask if anyone has any experiences with it? My doc said it does cause weight gain but if you watch your calories you should be fine.
I am ok with a few lbs, but want to hear you ladies and thoughts? How did this medicine treat you and feel? Did you gain weight in your tummy arms? I also have been diagnosed with hirtusim so i wouldnt mind a… read more

Any thoughts? Diet changes happened, and I've lost 30-60 pounds, I drink… read more
