hi, i thought i would write a seperate bit here for those who also suffer with polycystic ovary syndrome..
I had an ovary removed when i was 17 as i had a huge cyst that needed emergency treatment, i am now 22 and have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome on my only ovary, it is full of tiny little cysts, my testosterone is 3.2 where as a normal womans is 2.4
i am growing hair on my breats, chin and thick hair on my belly and upper legs, i feel as if i am turning into a man, also i am growing obeser every day, i only used to weigh 138 ponds now i weigh 230 pounds within 3 years, just wont budge, doc has given me metformin to take it is used for diabeties 2, he said it will help me loose weight, and when i loose the weight apparently my testerone will drop and it will also help with plycystic ovary syndrome, apparently sugar/fat/carbs feed your kidneys and then your ovarys apparently and the metformin supposed to help break it all down, anyways i want to here from someone who alsi suffers from this and has been offered metforming.. thankyou
also as you know with polycystiv ovarys periods are usually non exsistant, anyways dont know if this is anything to with it BUT my legs are always aching, no bsuises or anything, but i fear that whast if i got a bloodclot or something?
