Women with PCOS may experience pain in their pelvis, back, or abdomen, or feel pain after sex. PCOS pain can fluctuate throughout the month, causing discomfort and isolation.
On myPCOSteam, the social network and online support group women those living with PCOS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Pain management is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
Here are some conversations about pain management:
• Thinking about how far I’ve come with pain management and simple lifestyle changes I’ve made... it’s the little things that make a huge difference!
• I have just started a new pain management program and already feeling sick and wondering if I am doing the right thing. I don't know what to do anymore, I feel so alone.
• I went to my final class in the Opal Pain Management course today. I have learned quite a lot about pacing (living with chronic pain), medication, nutrition etc.
Here are some question-and-answer threads about pain management:
• Does anyone experience a great deal of pain if they walk too much?
• Does anybody else experience pain after sex?
• I have extreme pain during my period. Is this a part of PCOS or should I look for a secondary cause of the pain?
Can you relate?
