    Red face 22 with PCOS + VLCD

    Hey girlies, I thought I would introduce myself.

    I'm a 22 yo student, and i was diagnosed with PCOS when i was 17, with a blood test and an internal ultra sound.
    I had actually diagnosed myself, and asked my doctor to check it out. Once it was confirmed...nothing. I haven't had any follow up appointment with a doctor who could tell me more about it, what i should look out for or expect.
    I learnt through the internet. The doctor who carried out the ultrasound was pretty dismissive.

    I consider myself lucky, that my symptoms are not worse, I suffer mainly with weight gain, and difficultly keeping off any weight I lose, as well as some mild hirsutism (moustache, stubborn and quick growing body hair, fairly hair arms etc) and irregular periods.

    I have tried weight watchers in the past, and last summer I lost a stone.

    This summer, I'm trying the cambridge diet. 2 weeks completed, and I've lost 1/2 a stone . It will be interesting to see if losing a lot of weight will effect my excess hair, I hope so!

    It would be nice to get to know people, and learn more about peoples PCOS experiences.

    Big to all of you x

    I've been on a juiceplus diet which replaces meals in the same way but as its fruit I'm finding it easier to stick to! Have any of you considered other options?
    Im currently doing slimming world and it seems to be really working for me x

    Hi ladies! I'm a newbie to this! I'm 25 and I have PCOS, I've been TTC for years and nothing has happened. I was on clomid (50mg) a few weeks ago, which didn't work at all. I got 2 scans and my blood test today results and told it didn't have an impact at all, they do plan to increase my dosage but told me to try loose weight so last week joined slimming world! Had my first weigh in today and lost 2.5lbs, I'd of liked more but I'm pleased with my start xxx

    Heyyyyy, im 24 and was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 years ago.. as i suffered from abdominal pains etc therefore they did an ultrasound and a vaginal camera thing... and found i had PCOS... although they didnt state how bad my cysts were and didnt really discuss much about it like most of you I have had to do my own research. I am now doing the atkins diet and have found it to be very helpful... my partner is working away and is coming back in 3 weeks and we have discussed TTC this is my main motivation for losing weight and so far I have lost 10lbs in under a month therefore I am doing really well and I hope to continue this until he is home. I am also taking vitamins, folic acid and iron tablets. Apparently with PCOS if you lose 10% of your body weight it increases your chances of fertility by 40% not sure how true this is... but im going on this and this is my motivation to lose weight
    Does anybody have any other advice? x

    Hi Girls last year I done Lighter Life and lost around 6 stone.... body hair improved massively, I also had the confidence to have laser hair removal somewhere which was amazing... I have since gained weight and the hair is back but definitely not to the extent it was before! I'm now on day 2 or Exante (so much cheaper than Lighter Life) and fingers crossed it goes again

    Hi girls. I'm 26 and found out I had pcos about 5 years ago when I started gaining more weight. Since then I've been on and off different metformins, read books, fell off a bunch of diets, not had a great deal of help medically (is there much else they can do? It's down to me to try to control it is what I've been told and makes sense) been put on a contraceptive to sort my hormones and gained about five and a half stone along the way. My main issue is my hair. I am already naturally dark and have convinced myself I'm the only one this hairy but it seems that there are others! I have started Cambridge diet and feeling positive. Will my excess hair go down with my weight loss because it has gone up with the weight gain! OR am I just turning into a man!?!?

    I too have PCOS - really struggle to lose weight - Lighterlife total abstinence seems to be the only thing that works.

    Re the PCOS a low carb diet is supposed to help. Also - have recently been reading that vitamin D3 supplements can help. Ordered some Solgar ones from Amazon - wish me luck!

    My doctor recommended low carbs and before I dieted I cut down and lost weight naturally by doing that. Then Christmas came and I am a bit of a potato fiend so I fell off. But you are right about the carbs.
    Good luck
