PCOS- anyone else?
So I have noticed basically...excessive weight gain over the pass few years and sometimes I get a lot of breakouts on my face. I didn't think anything of it, until my FSIL told me I could have PCOS. I went to the gyno, got blood work done and she said there are clear signs that I have it, but I need an ultrasound to confirm.
What I am not understanding is, I am carrying extra weight and it's very hard for me to lose lbs, my skin isn't that bad at all (Ive been to a dermatologist and those were their exact words) and my period is controlled due to birth control, even when I was off BC I had gotten my period and it lasted a week.
Can the only possible symptom I have be weight gain and a few pimples? I am not sure about infertility yet since I haven't had an ultrasound and I am nowhere near trying to have a baby yet. I just know that PCOS tends to affect baby making....
Anyone else have PCOS and has it affected your weight? if so have you been prescribed anything to reduce your weight?
For the women who have it that get a regular period has it affected your fertility?
