My Gyno only gave me option of birth control, but my main conern is the weight gain I have been having. I do not have regular periods, but tend to get one every two months right now. The pill increases your insulin levels correct? Not sure where to go from here. My doctor didn't seem to responsive to my questions and basically told me BC was my only option.
I seem to bloat up after eating. It doesn't always happends, but it seems to appear when I'm more stressed out. It can get quite intense... I can lose up to one pant size in 24h and then gain it back in a couple days time. I tried keeping a food vs bloating journal, but it just happens whenever. I even started recording the days event to try figure what was going on, bUT still no clue...

Hi Ladies. So I got diagnosed today. My doctor wasn't very helpful. I don't know what type of PCOS I have and wasn't aware that there were other types of PCOS. I do a lot of research into things and had questions to ask. But when I got in there today and he told me the news I froze. I still don't really understand this Insulin thing. I have excessive hair growth on my face. Does anyone have any tips for that? That is my main concern at the moment.
Gonna take people's advice and go to the docs and ask to speak to a gyn as the endo was rubbish my question is what do I ask the doctor for? I know I ask for a referral to a gyn but why them specifically?
I really suck at all this so any help advise.. things to ask for would be great.
Thanks lovelies and have a great day
I have been seeing my doctor for about a year now. So far, I feel like my treatment plan is not working.

I told my dad he said it's bad unless.... and my dad said no that's impossible stop eating dominos... my parents think I'm infertile but I just got yelled at by my obgyn she said it's not!!!

I'm on the pill I just was throwing it up from… read more
I've been trying to find a good at home hair removal device because I can't afford to go to a professional. I've done quite a bit of research and found a few at home hair removal devices, out of all of them the LumaRx device seems to be the best and get the best results. Has anyone tried this before? If so, did you see results?
