PCOS Struggle - Any Suggestions?


I was diagnosed when I was 17. I had no periods since I was 16 but a lot of stomach cramps. I went through countless tests before the doctors figured it out. They tried birth control but I developed some kind of allergy to it. So at the moment I am not being treated which scares me because of the fact I could get cancer. I'm only 26. Can anyone suggest something else to try please?

Hi A.M.,

First of all, there's nothing to be scared of. Knowledge is power. The better you understand what PCOS is, the better you can control it.

You may find it helpful to read Emily's story. In the last comment at the bottom of the page, I outlined some things that Emily could do. You could do the same.

Essentially, you give the body what it needs, and get rid of stuff the body does not want or can't use.

Also, this site has hundreds of web pages with information that could help you. Maybe you could take an hour or two and read through our material.
