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.

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

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

Same. I have to take medroxy progesterone pills because I get tired of the on going break through bleeding. If I do have a natural one it's like once a year if that. I noticed after using birth… read more

I Ovulate And Have Regular Periods But I Was Recently Disnosed; How Is This Possible?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I’m newly diagnosed and haven’t a clue what it fully means to function with PCOS. I have always had heavy periods as well as ovary pain but I’ve typically always had a cycle every 28 days and I also ovulate. However my lab work indicated that I do have it. I don’t know up from down. I’m 33 and want to have a child someday and now I don’t know if that’s ever a possibility. I’m terrified and just want hope / help.

Is It Really Impossible To Regrow Hair In PCOs?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, suffering from sudden hairloss since 6 months. In the past I used to have very beautiful hair, but now i have pretty much nothing.. it is totally devastating. I cant live my personal life and my self esteem is totally low, i have deleted all my photos, were I was beautiful.
