I Am Suffering Emotionally From Pcos

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 91 People

    I think I have accepted the fact

    that this is something lifelong that I'm going to suffer through and it totally sucks. I hate taking the medication, the fact i have to work 10 times harder than usual just to lose weight and possibly the fact that I will never have a child. I guess its getting to me today...

    I've been on birth control

    for PCOS for nine months now. My worst symptom is mood swings. When I started BC it took months but the rapid moods calmed and i thought I was in the clear. This last week though I have been crying at nothing, feeling like there is no point to anything and just not seeing life...

    I was diagnosed with PCOS about a month ago.

    I have had a suspicion for years that I have this but went to three doctors who dismissed it right away without taking blood work because I didn't have any of the "typical" symptoms. I didn't have facial hair or missed periods so therefore they decided it wasn't worth looking...

    Hopeful, Yet Discouraged.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS late April 2013. I've always felt something was wrong with me. Last year I only had two periods and thought maybe it was due to stress. I seemed to gain weight faster and was unable to lose any. I was always tired, sluggish and most of all depressed. I...

    I'm eighteen and was diagnosed at fifteen.

    I've been treating my PCOS with a lower dose estrogen birth control pill, have tried about 3 or 4 already and they have all made me crazy. My first pill about five months in made me depressed and anxious and so I switched pills and through trial and error ended up on taking a...

    I Think Pcos Destroy's One's Self-confidence

    I'm 14 years old, and I was diagnosed with PCOS only a few days ago. The doctor told me not to worry since it could be treated, but I researched on what PCOS is and my spirits kept on being dragged down. I remember seeing that a woman with PCOS is more likely to suffer from...
