I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS. Started by me noticing mass weight gain. I've always been athletic build and 85kg 5ft10. I gained weight all of a sudden and could not work it off no matter how much I tried. So a visit to the doc was in order. They put me on a higher dosage pill to help control the hormones but in turn made me gain more weight!

Hi my daughter has recently found out she has polycystic ovaries and is quite upset about it. We have read up a little about the condition and it mentions diet should change. My daughter is a vegitarian aswell so it would be really helpful if anyone can help me with this.

Can't remember the last time I woke up and thought "Wow, I feel great"! or even "I feel well rested" Can anyone help or have any suggestions on how I can make a start to change my life when I just feel so dam tired all the time?
Research Question- DO You have POS - Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, were you prescribed Clomid? I have a few questions for a research report. 1. Did you conceive while on Clomid? 2. Did you develop Gestational Diabetes? 3. Were you overweight while on Clomid? 4. Did you develop Pre-Eclampsia or HELLP Syndrome during your pregnancy? Thank You for everyone that helps with an answer, I appreciate it greatly! Miranda Sherman #PCOS #Clomid #gestationaldiabetes
