    Does anyone else suffer from this and has it made your weight loss more difficult?

    I have the cysts but I don't have the syndrome which means that the docs can't do anything about it. They did tell me that it would be slightly harder for me to lose weight because of it

    PCOS AND WEIGHT

    i have an appt @ the hospital today for an ultrasound scan, to determine whether or not i actually have PCOS. I was told 6 years ago (when i was 15) that i have PCOS but docs were reluctant to do anything, even give me a scan. Hopefully find out today, and will ask how it affects my weight, as i do find it difficult to lose. There must be something wrong as my periods started when i was 9 and stopped after i had a really bad one, which left m in bed for a week, when i was twelve. im abit scared :(

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was in my early 20s, and yes I find it does make it harder for me to lose weight. Having PCOS makes its harder to metabolise carbs ( from what I remember being told), and I find that if I stick to low carb diets , the weight does come off a wee bit easier :)

    You probably won't get any answers from the hospital, they will do the scan and if you get a nice sonographer they might tell you what they see but they won't be able to tell you how that translates into a diagnosis. They will send their findings back to your doctor and your doc will talk you through it. The scan is only a small part of it though, the blood tests and symptoms hold most of the answers x

    I was diagnosed back in '92 and it certainly makes it harder for me to loose weight. Even if i stick to it rigidly I never get the results that others seem to get :(
