I knew something wasnt right, although it took me a while to get to the docs and get a diagnosis. The things about PCOS is that its charcterised by its symptoms- but everyones symptoms are sooo different and varied.
I had broken up with my boyfriend of 4 years and gone off the pill.... i didnt get my periods for 12 months after that!! ( The pill tends to mask this symptom in women becasue it makes your periods very regular.) So... that was the first big sign. I aso had small bumps/pimples ALL over my forehead. aslo bad break outs and acne.
Other symptoms to look for--- weigh gain, felrtility, depression, acne, extra hair, irregular on head....periods, loss of hair on head, difficulty carrying full term (pregnancy)
BUT every women with PCOS is sooo different and the symptoms need to be investigated completely by a doctor or encronoligist.
I can honestly say i was in such a slump last year (8years after diagnosis) - major weight gain, depression, really bad skin- wanted to go see my specialist and before i did, i did some extra reading about PCOS.... from that i decided to hold off my specialist visit untill i had tried everything to help myself. so... i begun exercising again, watched my food and after time i was a different person!!! It was amazing, through fitness and health i was able to control my symptoms. i was feelign so much better!!!!
sorry, babbling on a bit now but think my point i'm trying to make is: all symptoms any girl/women can have if they are not in a good state of health. The sypmtom of PCOS can be controlled by good old fitness and health. ( of course this is just my experience and others my differ but i can only share my personal journey)
Hope this helps!! Love to hear how you go. good luck!!
