    Default PCOS Sufferers?

    Any fellow PCOS sufferers out there? My symptoms were getting a little out of control and so I am getting back on track with treatment. I also have endometriosis--it makes for a fun combination!
    I am looking for any diet or success tips you may have. It will be more fun to suffer together!!!

    I have PCOS and Endometriosis too. I didn't realize I had these until we had troubles conceiving. I ended up getting laprasacopic surgery to remove the endo and the only real symptom I have of PCOS is hard eggs and extra hair.

    What kind of treatment do you get?

    I know with PCOS just keeping the pounds off helps limit symptoms.

    glucophage (metformin) is excellent to abate the symptoms and prevent the type II diabetes that results. da bomb!

    I do too. I take Glumetza (basically extended release metformin- I had nausea issues with metformin). I just got back onto all of my medications and am hoping it will help with weight loss- last time I was on it I lost 30 pounds quickly and easily. And of course I want to keep diabetes away. I am thankful that I had no infertility issues. As far as diet is concerned- I've found that if I remove things slowly it works pretty well for me. I started out removing all high fructose corn syrup. Then all hydrogenated oils. Now I'm working on maintaining that and now removing starchy foods. Not easy- that's for sure. But health is so important.

    I know this is an older post but I wanted to say I have PCOS and endo too. Have been TTD for 2.5+years now. Im planning to adopt the low GI eating along with my metformin and synthroid (hypothyroid too) and am hoping that will help!

    Hi I have PCOS as well and due to late identification I already got type II diabetes. I am now on metformin and I take a insulin shot at night. I feel pretty good most of the time.

    We are also trying to conceive our first (which pcos does not help).

    Nice to meet all of you.

    Another PCOS girl here.

    My main symptoms are crazy periods...working on losing some weight to help with the symptoms.

    I wasn't diagnosed until TTC my 2nd child. I did have success getting pregnant on metaformin

    I am glad to see this post still going. Welcome Queenlavera!

    Here's my update: I had laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, a D & C, and a few polyps removed early December. Recovery went well and my last period was very manageable. We are not actively trying to conceive right now but plan to within a year. Right now the goal is weight loss. I will start metformin again in a month and hope I have the same success as last time (45lbs) with diet and exercise.

    Everyone please keep posting your successes and/or setbacks.
