Are fatigue and nausea symptoms of PCOS?

Hi, I'm experiencing some of these same symptoms. In July of this yr I was diagnosed with pcos. I'm 27 yrs old & I don't have any children & I've never been pregnant. I have sharp pains in my lower right abdomen with little to no relief. I was prescribed birth control & told to come back in 3 mos. Since my initial follow up, I have been extremely tired & I experience weird bouts of nausea. Are these symptoms of pcos? I was told to take otc pain meds like aspirin & ibuprofen, these pills don't help at all. Pls...help.

Hi There
polycystic ovarian syndrome is associated with lack of periods, increased facial and lame pattern hair growth, obesity, and the development of diabetes.
PCOS, per se , is not associated with the development of ovarian cancer.

However , prolonged intervals of not having a period because of not ovulating can lead the the build up of the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) and is associated with a risk of cancer of the endometrium. So any woman with PCOS who develops abnormal bleeding needs a biopsy of the lining of the uterus.

fatigue and nausea are not associated with PCOS. You should see your primary care for a thoughtful discussion of other issues associated with your concerns.

This forum focuses on questions related to ovarian cancer. Luckily, your symptoms do not sound suspicious for cancer but I always advocate for a careful physical exam for anyone who is having distress
best wishes
