What are the symptoms of PCOS? I would look it up, but anything I look up on the internetz sounds similiar to everything else. I would like an in-depth perspective
My personal symptoms were the typical ones (not the same for everyone, mind you, TPT [I believe] has said she has it too but by looking at her physically you'd never guess):
- Very heavy periods, but very spontaneous and probably only 2-3 times a year.
- Hair where there shouldn't be hair on a woman - yes I've done laser hair removal ($4k worth) but it's well well worth it.
Weight that comes on very very easily, but is hard as hell to get off. The thing is, once you LOOOOSE weight, the symptoms tend to get better.
- Problems with fertility is also a symptom, I never tested that - only accidently found out that I'm not completely infertile by taking the metformin.
- Also, you can get an internal ultrasound done on your lady organs, mine have gobs and gobs of cysts.
That's about all I know about it, it's kind of like a HERE WE'LL PUT YOU ON SOME BIRTH CONTROL - TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT GOOD LUCK - type of deal really. :|
