How I Reduced PCOS Symptoms

by Nia
(India)

It was during my teenage that I suddenly stopped getting my periods for about four months straight.

I went to the doctor and he gave me birth control pills to boost my estrogen and progesterone levels as he said that this was PCOS.

As long as I was under medication I was getting my periods regularly. My doctor had given me a course for around three to four months and once the course got over they stopped again.

I went to a different doctor and she gave me the same kind of treatment but once the course was over they would stop again.

I hadn't realized that it was because of the stress I was undergoing. I was under a lot of academic and emotional pressure, and due to all that stress I was gaining weight.

I used to find my pleasure and happiness in food which caused all that weight gain.

Another doctor told me that it was because I was gaining weight that I was not getting my periods. I tried to lose weight but there was no improvement.

That was when I realized that my stress was connected to me gaining weight and that gain of weight was connected to irregular periods.

It took some time and a lot of learning, but I finally came out of all that stress I was going through.

I am also making sure I have a good watch on my diet and I'm working out every day to keep myself as healthy as possible.

I now am 21 and I haven't missed a period since.

So for me, as long as I am able to keep myself happy and away from pressure and stress, I don't gain weight my periods have been regular.

Even under pressure or stress I have learned to deal with it in the right way.
