God Bless All PCOS Women
Hello to all my PCOS Sisters. I am 34 years old and I found out I had PCOS when I was 17 years old. When I was 13 I started my period, and at first all seemed normal. But just a few months later, I was missing periods here and there. When I was 16, I went from having a period every other month to every three or four months, and when I turned twenty, I completely quit having periods.
Well, my Dr told me I needed to stay on Birth Control, but as many of us, the side effects were worse then not having a period, so I quit. I was really stupid for not taking better care and concern for myself.
Well, from the time I was 20 until 6 months ago, I took no meds, no care for my PCOS whatsoever, nothing did I do, but balloon up to a whopping 225 pounds. Well, my husband and I decided it was time to TTC, so I called and scheduled me an appointment with my OB/GYN and he was speaking to us about PCOS and all he wanted to try.
So he sent me for my Labs, and lo and behold guess what? I have type II Diabetes...(Now I Was Scared).. My Dr. put me on glucophage 1500 mg a day and I had my ovarian drilling back in August of 2007. he also removed a small patch of Endometrosis, which was caused from going SOOO long without a period!!!
Since I started the metformin and had my Ovarian Drilling, I have had regular cycles with the exception of December, and I was just completely stressed out, because my Dr told me he couldn't get me to ovulate and wanted me to go to a specialist for Invitro...
Well, I have been really watching what I eat and have changed my life style habits and currently I have lost 8 pounds... I was told it was so hard to lose weight with PCOS, but I don't see that at all.
If you are dedicated and want to feel better, watch the carbs, drink plenty of water, eat fish, NOT Breaded and exercise... I am doing it all in moderation... And I feel better now than I have in the past 12 years.
I hope In February when I see my Infertility Specialist, we can do something other than invitro, because I can't afford that, but I am hopeful I will become pregnant, but if not, I will just be Happy to lead a healthier lifestyle and feel better about taking care of myself. After all, that is the most Important thing..
My prayer is for (all) Women with PCOS, to have a bright outlook on the condition and to maintain a healthy attitude, and of course to achieve pregnancy is that is what you hope for... God Bless You All.
