Need Help with a PCOS School Project - Can anyone answer a few questions for me?

by Jessica
(Sydney, Australia)

Hey I'm a 17 year old girl studying my last year in school.

I have a school assessment and I'm doing it on PCOS because I myself suffer from it and to get more awareness of the syndrome.

If it's possible could someone please post here their story on how it affected them as a teenager?

Some questions…can you add more on how PCOS affects you?

How old were you when you were diagnosed?

Did it impact your life to a certain extent, e.g., cause depression, lowered self esteem, body and health issues?

How did you deal with all these issues?

Do you use medications, diet control or other to help the symptoms caused by the syndrome?

PCOS affects in many ways. There are many symptoms and not everyone gets all of them. I was 18 when I was diagnosed. But I believe I had it much longer. My cycles were never regular ever since I started. It is affecting my life as we speak because I am having many difficulties concieving a baby with my husband. It hasnt really caused depression, but I really hate how much I am struggling with my weight. I am currently attempting at a low calorie diet. And exercising daily. I am also on Metformin and another med to help with hair growth. Also taking folic acid, prenatal vitamins, and a pill to help me start my cycle. Hope this helps some.
