Well my name is Ashlee, I am 22 years old and I live in Tennessee. Anyways, I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18.

At the time I didn't take it serious because I really didn't care. But now I am married and want a family.

I have been on Metformin and Spirnolactone and Desogen (birth control) it really helped me for a while, until me and my husband lost our insurance and I couldn't afford the meds. Well a few months ago we got some insurance through his new job, and things where so bad when I went back to the doctor.

My diabetes was awful my sugar was so high that i passed out in the clinic that day. My doctor made me go to a diabetic doctor to get my diabetes under control so that my ovaries would work.

Well I will tell you something I am doing really good, I take my meds everyday, I eat healthier and I exercise, and my sugar is doing 100 percent better.

So if you're active and eat right and do what the doctors tell you then it will be ok.

And this month I started my period on my own!

Things are only going to get better from here! I have learned to accept my PCOS, and it has made me a better person!

Ed. comments: Eating a healthier diet, especially a "low glycemic load" diet will do wonders for anyone who has type 2 diabetes or is prone to diabetes or who has a blood sugar problem, or who has PCOS.

Secondly, exercise, and lots of it, will also result in a big improvement. An excellent example is what Gemma Magnusson was able to accomplish with exercise. She is an inspiration to us all.
