I am 17, I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15 and I had open surgery when I was 15 and had two large cysts removed and I still have both my ovaries. My PCOS depresses me very much because I am gaining a lot of weight very quickly, and I have very noticeable rather dark facial hair (kinda like a beard).
I have tried shaving to remove the excess hair, and my skin is too sensitive for the hair removal stuff, and I don't have the money for laser hair removal.
I have not been told that I will never conceive, but I am scared to death that I will not be able to.
I admit, I don't exercise and I don't eat like I should,
I guess I find it useless.
I don't really have a good outlook on life right now.
I am very interested in asking my ob/gyn about metformin, so I think I will do that soon.
If anyone can give me any advice, or encouragement, it will be appreciated greatly.
