I Appreciate Your PCOS Stories...They Give Me Hope
hello my name is stephanie i am 21 years old and have been married for 1 year i was diagnosed with pcos in oct 2008 and put on metformin to control my insulin.
i have had irregular periods for about 3 years and could bleed a full mth if i allowed it after several trips to the hospital for severe blood clots and bleeding i went to a gyno and the did several tests and ultrasounds and he said he thought i had pcos i have been struggling due to that i want a baby so badly.
Hearing all these stories gives me hope.
I am still working hard lol to have a child of my own one day and hope that everyone fulfills their dreams and i am glad we are all on the same boat.
I appreciate you guys. You have no idea how hard it is to see everyone around you having children and all i have are hopes and dreams that may not even come true ( well maybe some of you do know how it feels to want something so bad and not able to have it)
thank u for your time
please email me it will be nice to have someone to talk to every once in a while
Stephanie, you can do more to deal with your insulin resistance problems than just taking metformin.
We suggest the following:
1) Eat a healthier diet. A healthy diet plays an absolutely crucial role in managing the symptoms of PCOS, including infertility, acne, weight, hair loss, male-pattern hair growth, and depression. A healthy diet will also greatly reduce your risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
For starters, get rid of refined carbohydrates and "convenience foods" from your diet. If you don't know what that means, get our pcos diet book.
2) Regular exercise is vital, especially if you have a weight issue. Daily exercise, when combined with the correct diet, can be as effective as metformin (Glucophage), but without its side effects.
3) Be aware that metformin has side effects that not all women can tolerate.
4) Selected nutritional supplements such as vitex or d-pinitol can be quite helpful in helping you to normalize your hormones.
