My name is Karen and I am new to this board.
Hi Karen! Jen here, and welcome! I also have PCOS, but am not currently taking meds.
Thanks so much Jen! I'm glad to know I'm not alone!
Definately not alone.
Welcome Karen! I defiantly know how it feels to see everyone in your family "fall" pregnant when you are trying. There are lots of "fertile myrtles" in my family lol!
Thanks so much Lucy! I really appreciate it.
I have PCOS as well but it wasnt diagnosed till I conceived ! I had acne all my life and was always treated for it by dermatologists. To keep acne in contrrol, I used to keep a good check on my diet and exercise a lot. In hindsight, I was treating PCOS w/o being aware of it ! So yes, diet and exercise do help PCOS. Now I am on metformin and pill to regulate.
It would have been an entirely different story had I not been able to conceive in the first place but I suffered a lot for my uncontrolled acne. One loss, one win!
Thanks thats good to know! I also had terrible acne in high school and an extra layer of fat around my middle that woudln't go away no matter what I did.
