Same, I was diagnosed over 15 years ago now, when I had part of my ovary removed I fell pregnant and it went but its coming back now. My doctor really acts as though its nothing and tells me we will just see how it is in a few months, so patronising. The minerva iud works well for me or dianette it gets rid of dark hairs in unwanted places lol I had a moustache at one point and horrid whisker type ons on my chin, im only small and petite but I never felt feminine. Im in the UK at the moment its great you can go any hospital any time and be seen for free they have a few women only hospitals that have world specialists working there thats who did my ovarian 'shaving' operation, had to wait three months but he really had lots of options. I can call the hospital and ask a few questions for you see if he can help he is a nice guy xxxView Thread
Same here when I tried it, had the worst nausea ever, Nurse said it will go after a week, a month later no change still dizzy and ill from it except with a face like an uncooked pizza all grey an spotty. Not for me, I use mierva now its ace, its an iud but a new ine in a circle shape that releases a hormone and lasts up to 5 years and fertility goes straight back to whatever normal is for pcos people. Actually I tried a pill called dianette its for pcos ladies with dark hair problems on face and body but its only allowed 3 months at a time then a break of a month. Made my skin lovely and no nausea, its not made from the same hormones its actually meant for hair removal but has a contraceptive side effects! x Its hard having pcos I felt like I was androgenous really. I had them remove half of one of my ovaries it had a cyst the same as a satsuma, pure agony but got pregnant after the op after trying ivf and every drug around! As for your missing periods its nothing major if you miss a few its bleeding in between them you need to watch out for. I missed four once all my doctor done was take bloods, the hospital gave me that minerva iud and the dianette maybe it will help you too x Keep your chin up, big hugs xxxView Thread
