Finally I have a resolution to the past month of pain and missed period and strange symptoms...
I had an app with gyno today and found out I have PCOS, which could of been worse news, but not the best either!
I guess my question revolves around - what are the symptoms - or will I get them, I have read alot about weight gain, insulan issues, hair growth - or loss (on head), infertility and many more... I suppose my question is now, will I get them all - or will I just be subject to one or two?? What should I expect??
SO far, I have had PMS cramping for 4 weeks, painful - doc said birth control will fix that (as I havent had issues like this while I was on it) i have missed my period this month, but in the past have only had one every 6 months (only been off pill long enough to work that out!) I am thin, infact dont seem to put on weight that easily - will this mean now - I am going to put on a stack - one of my GF's did and now is having massive trouble loosing it...??
Hair growth - same thing, I am not hairy at all really, so does this mean I will get alot more?
Intfertility - worries me alot, I want a family very badly, and my boyfriend and I wanted to start this - which I suppose due to the pain - maybe reconsider timing as when I am not on bc - i am in constant pain... I have read alot about the fertility treatments on a few PCOS sites, and it seems they are high rating - its just upsetting knowing I cant just fall pregnant when I want babies - I will have to work hard at it and the gyno said - more then likely - only through induced ovulation - what does all this mean??
SORRY I know its long, and I have alot of questions I guess I am just curious to see what and how everyone deals with their symptoms... I am extreamly tired all the time, yet I do have troubles sleeping.... I am not quite sure but think i read tiredness is a symptom - how can I treat this? will bc help - I have always felt exhausted... so I am a lil confussed??
Thanks ladies - I am so SO glad there is somewhere for us to work through this together - have to say its very daunting atm, (just coming from docs today)... Thank you for any advise/reply I get... xx Wish you all good health!
