Bloating & Cramping?

Bloating & Cramping?

I wanted to see if anyone had any advice on dealing with bloating and cramping? I have seen a lot of woman on YouTube recommend drinking apple cider vinegar and lemon in the morning. Anyone have any tips on this? I basically feel bloated and have the sensation of cramps all the time.

Does anyone experience a great deal of pain if they walk too much?

Does anyone experience a great deal of pain if they walk too much?

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.

What kind of birth control should I ask to try?

What kind of birth control should I ask to try?

I was diagnosed with PCOS about three years ago, and Ive been seeing an endocrinologist about every three months since. Im 23 and only now going to a gynecologist because it scares me (both the vulnerability of it and the PCOS issues). I have pretty painful periods that I want to try to manage better with birth control, but I dont know what to get. I've been doing research and I like the idea of either an implant or a hormonal IUD, but I wanted to ask for the… read more

Is anybody dealing with vaginal/vulva irritation due to pcos?

Is anybody dealing with vaginal/vulva irritation due to pcos?

And if so how do you deal with it? Every other month or so I get dryness, irritation, redness, swelling, and sometimes I get these red lines that look like cracks on my vagina, labia, or clitoris. The red lines are uncomfortable when I get them but they only hurt if I touch them. I read some where online that pcos can cause thinning of the delicate vulva skin. I've told my doctor about it but she just dismissed it as normal for pcos. I just got… read more
