Do any of you ladies have PCOS? It's Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and physically it may cause cysts on your ovaries, hair in unwanted places (chin, etc), weight gain particularity in the stomach, irregular periods and a host if other issues.

Looking for other women who have this and how are you dealing with it?

Yep I have PCOS.I was diagonised at 13,and Im 16 now.My gynaeo gives me pills to regulate my periods but as soon as Im off them I get all irregular again
My gynaeo said the only cure is losing weight-and he put me on a diet which made me really sick.

What meds did they put you on? I got diagnosed at 19. I had never had irregular periods before then.

I have it too. I was diagnosed in 2012. Right now I'm on Metaformin .....My docs want me to lose weight also. Im not really good at taking my pills like I should. I know I need to stop playing with my life and keep it up. I am just really focused on losing this weight and getting down to a size 14 by December 8th. I'm a 18 or 20 right now. I'm on the HCG Diet right now. I was on it last year and lost a lot of weight but now I'm tryin to get healthy for a cruise and then I'm gonna do a marathon.

How old are you? I've tried to get put on Metformin because I heard it was great helping you lose weight if you had PCOS but my doctor won't put me on it for some reason. I'm going to be switching doctors soon though and see what happens. Do you have any kids?

Hey guys. I have mild pcos but I also suffer from endometriosis which was diagnosed at the start of this year. The only thing my gyno prescribed was a strong contraceptive pil. But im able to function now without crippling pain.

Do you have any side effects from the pill? PCOS and Endo?? That must suck :(

I have been on about 6 different pills since I was about 15. (Im now 20) I have finally found one that works for me. Many of the others would stop working or still leave me with crippling pains. I have finally found a pill that works and its a long term one so its made to be taken continuously for 5-6 months at a time. Which is really handy when you have to lie on a couch for a day or so. And it does suck but iv gotta live with it so no point being down about it....
