I will find a way to beat my pcos

by Joanna
(Bridlington)

I was diagnosed with pcos when I as 22, I had stopped taking the pill, and was waiting for my first natural period to arrive, it didn't come, so I went to see my local doctor.

She told me I had immature hormones, and that I will have problems conceiving, although I didn't want children at that point in time, I was quite unhappy that the choice had been taken away from me,

I suppose I was a little addicted to caffeine, drinking to much coke, and without a care in the world, that affected my health greatly, I got depressed and started to ignore everything that was going on around me, and started to suffer in silence.

It was only until I got married that I started to think about children, and what that would mean to me and my husband, so I booked myself in to see a dietician and came up with a regular eating plan, a healthier eating plan.

I got myself a few pcos books and started to study hard, What foods need to be eaten, what exercise I need to do, and I started to get wiser, I wanted to beat this pcos that was always bringing me down...

So I chucked certain foods from my diet, started to drink plenty of water (which I hate) Started to eat brown pasta, chicken and tuna, and plenty of fruit and veg, and sometimes a protein shake. For the balance and the weight is coming off slowly, I had always been at eleven and a half stone, something that just wouldn't budge no matter what I did, but now I am ten stone nine, and I am feeling much healthier, I get the odd dizzy spell which is really annoying, but I am coping.

I recently spilt from my husband, which was quite a stressful time and although stress can be a main fact of upsetting pcos, I managed to keep an open mind, and not lose track of what I have done so far.

I will beat this pcos, I don't want or like it, The chance for me to not have kids is daunting and also very depressing, but I will keep up with everything that I am doing, and get my periods back.

Positive attitude Girls, We will beat this together.
