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?

My friend recently got diagnosed with it. She noticed the hairs in odd places and went to the doctor. They had two options one was water tablets, the other I can't remember. Spk with your doctor they should be able to help. Good luck :-)

No I would google it. There's definitely medication they can offer to correct it. My friend got referred to a specialist at the hospital, who advised of the two different medications. They referred her back to the 
GP to get the prescription.

I mean I can google it all day lol but without a doctors prescription for the meds it won't do any good. I'm giving myself a year to stay on track and lose 50-55 lbs. :)
