Life Hacks and PCOS

Posted on February 14, 2019

Living with PCOS is a day-to-day battle. There are so many symptoms of a PCOS diagnosis to tackle and deal with: acne, missing periods, facial hair, cramps, migraines, unbalanced hormone levels, thinning hair, weight gain, high blood sugar, and so much more. Learning life hacks from other women with PCOS is the best way to learn what works and find support.

On myPCOSteam, the social network and online support group for those living with PCOS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Life hacks are one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about life hacks:

I have a lot of acne, and I am wondering if anyone has found any product that’s been successful or tips to help clear it up?

Advice for Losing Weight against all odds? I eat a very protein heavy, low carb diet and have for years. I also run half marathons and exercise daily. If I don't do these things I gain weight like no one's business and I sure as heck do not EVER lose.

I was diagnosed today with PCOS. I would like to gather tips on how to track symptoms.

Here are some conversations about life hacks:

"So my last month at home I stopped eating like I was crazy and started moving around more frequently. Its definitely difficult now I put on those pounds. I'm basically starting from scratch. At least I haven't given up and I'm starting right."

"Keeping up my vitamin D, B12, and magnesium levels with vitamins are good for depression and mood swings. My libido, PMS, and my mood has been better the past few weeks."

"I also saw a naturopath and used the clear blue brand ovulation kit and the ferdy mobile phone app to track my periods and my ovulation. It clearly worked...."

Can you relate?
