Link Between PCOS And Hyperphotosensitivity?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I was just wondering if anyone else has problems with hyperphotosensitivity? I burn really badly. It started when I was in my early 20s - I got second degree burns on my legs after being outside for about 45 minutes and I had been wearing sun cream. At the time they told me it was the contraceptive pill I was on - it's notorious for it. I'm no longer on that pill and I'm really careful now but it's frustrating. And even on cloudy days I have to wear sunglasses because the sky is so bright. It's… read more

I was checked for rheumatism as a teenager when I first started having problems with my joints but the tests were negative then. It would be interesting to see if they've changed.

Does Gastric Bypass Help With Hormone Imbalance?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been talking to my doctor about how I haven’t gotten my period since April of 2017 & he’s been telling me that all these symptoms that I’ve been dealing with are all due to my hormones being imbalanced & that most of my current health issues could possibly be reversed if I lost weight. The more I do to try & lose weight, the more weight I actually end up gaining & it’s frustrating. Especially when I’m putting in all the work & energy & I’m getting results that are the complete opposite of… read more

Get ALL the information before you do it. You can't undo surgery. A lot of places now a days, hold "seminars" about weight loss surgery.

Is It Normal To Not Be Able To Sleep When Your Hormones Are All Over The Place?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I was sleeping really good until Saturday night and last night, I haven’t changed up my routine in any way, I listen to something positive before I go to sleep, I’ve tried meditation but nothing has worked and I can barely function during the day.

Any Advise For Subduing Or Getting Rid Of Hirsutism?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

My hormones are balanced but I still deal with hirsutism on a daily basis. So much so that I shave (my face) every day, if not twice a day.

No Periods
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A myPCOSteam Member

I’m the same.,.I haven’t had a period in so long and I’m trying to regulate my hormones so I can get one..I know of a YouTuber who had pcos and she didn’t have her period for 6 years die to pcos

What Can I Do Or Take To Reduce Daytime Fatigue?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I’m eating what I should be eating. I’m taking all my vitamins b, c, d, and zinc but I’m still exhausted. It’s so hard to focus on and because I have to sleep all day. I’m eating vegetables, meat, fruit etc but nothing seems to help. I’m not sleeping hardly at night now because of insomnia.
