i was told that i had pcos when i was 15 years old. I only found out through a blood test. Luckly i knew what it was because all the women in my family have it.
Being so young i didnt think that it was going to affect my day to day life and soon i had a long term boyfriend and decided to go on the pill. What a mistake that was, i didn't think about the weight side of it and how that makes all the other symptoms much worse. I went up 2 and half stone in 2 years, to make matters worse my symptoms had got really bad, excess hair, weight gain and lack of sex drive if im to be honest and at 17 years old i guess your ment to be \"at it like rabbits\"!
Needless to say me and my boyfriend split up, and even though i am now off the pil in the last 2 years ive put on another 2 stone. i can't get the weight off. my new partner tries to motivate me but i feel depressed and all the symptoms that i had before are back, but much worse and i don't want to lose another partner like i did before, does anyone have any suggestions about how to lose wait and make symptoms more able to manage?
