Diet and exercise helped me with PCOS

by Jana

I got my first period when I was 14. It didn't come back for probably about 2 years but I had read online that that was normal, so I wasn't worried. After that I'd get it maybe twice or three times a year. I knew something wasn't quite right.

I Googled my symptoms which included acne, a few stray dark hairs on my chin, and of course my completely irregular periods, and decided I had PCOS.

I mentioned it to my doctor when I was 20 and she said she doubted it because I'm thin. Ha.

I was diagnosed a few months later. She kept pushing BCP but I said no.

That year I started exercising regularly and eating better because I was going to be in a wedding and wanted to tone up a bit.

A few months after being healthier, I got my period after it had been MIA for 9 months, one of the longest stretches I have ever gone without it.

Now that I eat better and work out I get it every month, occasionally it skips one month. I'm 21 and not ready to have a baby yet, but I'm hopeful when the time is right, it will happen.
