I've had PCOS since I was around 17 - I began getting a hair growth on my face and then irregular periods, and was eventually diagnosed at 19. They immediately put me on birth control - the low dose one which did manage my periods but I'd rather not be on the pill if so. Its made me put on weight, I struggle with my emotions and a bit of a weird one but its messed with my alcohol intolerance? I'm 22 and ever since taking birth control, its messed with my digestion - i have like 2 alcoholic drinks and feel sick and my stomach makes some awful noises.
Anyway, I went for my pill review the other day and asked if there were any alternatives to combat the symptoms, but they said other than the coil/injection, there wasn't and it would mess with my body if I came off the pill.
I wondered if anyone had suggestions on how to improve my hormone levels and try and get natural periods again?
