Please help me with PCOS, I'm sorry this isn't a success story
Hello, my name is Crystal. I'm 19 years old.
I'm not sure that I can ever remember starting my period. When I was 13 I went to see a doctor because of my period issue, it was then I was diagnosed with PCOS.
My doctor put me on birth control but I had horrible side affects like nausea, mood swings like crazy, depression, weight gain. I weighed 120 before bc and after I was 156!! I had to get off of it and I did.
After that experience I was really scared and I didn't care if I ever started my period.
Through those years I was very depressed with all the weight I had gained but I was mostly depressed with the excessive hair.
I have never felt normal. When I was 16 I went on a diet called the HCG diet where I injected a pregnancy hormone and lost 25 pounds in 40 days. I currently weigh 135, still no period.
I'm 19 now and I'm ready to understand PCOS without fear. I want to control PCOS with out taking any prescribed drugs, I want to deal with it naturally.
Please any help would be much appreciated. I'm thankful for this site, I know I'm not alone.
