Positive Attitude Crucial for Overcoming PCOS

by Sasha

Hi. My name is Sasha and I would just like to say that these stories I have read have given me and so many other women out there hope!

I was diagnosed with PCOS last year, (even though I went to many doctors before who couldn't figure out why I had excessive hair growth and irregular periods). I was put on the pill and metformin.

One thing I would really like to say is don't just take your doctor's word for everything, there is sooo much my doctor(s) has not told me...and I had to figure it out on my own.

Diet and exercise are extremely important with PCOS, and guess what? so is research!

Because there are a lot of things out there that can help you, and maybe that little help is all you need to become pregnant!

SO don't lose hope, consult your doctor and definitely do some research.

A positive attitude is vital to combat PCOS, and if you have been told by your doctor that you "can't" get pregnant or have a low chance...remember that you know your body better than anyone else, your doctor just might be wrong.

Editor's note: I agree 100%. A positive attitude toward yourself and your health issues is a perquisite to getting healthier, and achieving your dreams such as starting a family.

Secondly, each of us has to do her own research. You doctor does not have time and is not financially rewarded for doing research on PCOS. Therefore most doctors simply give you birth control pills or metformin and send you on your way. That is an overly simplistic approach to a very complex disorder.

We recommend that you spend some time reading our past newsletters, which probably contain more research news about PCOS in one place than almost anywhere else on the Internet.
