The Truth About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is considered the most common cause of female infertility. But, with proper diagnosis and treatment, many women with PCOS are able to achieve a healthy pregnancy. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a constellation of symptoms affecting about 10% of women.

PCOS can begin in the teen years and affect women almost all the way up until they go through menopause when women’s hormones naturally diminish and their periods naturally stop. PCOS can present in many different ways but the hallmarks of PCOS are irregular periods and acne or facial hair. Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. Women with PCOS tend to have higher amounts of male hormones.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition that affects women in their child-bearing years and alters the levels of multiple hormones, resulting in problems affecting many body systems. Most women with polycystic ovary syndrome produce excess male sex hormones (androgens), a condition called hyperandrogenism. Having too much of these hormones typically leads to excessive body hair. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a hormonal disorder affecting women without any real cause or cure, “though there’s likely a combination of genetic and environmental factors at play,” says Julie Levitt, M.D., ob-gyn at The Women’s Group of Northwestern in Chicago. Polycystic ovary syndrome Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have a hormonal imbalance and metabolism problems that may affect their overall health and appearance.

PCOS is also a common and treatable cause of infertility. There is good news and bad news about the relationship between Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and menopause. First, here’s the bad news.

Many women who suffer from this condition of the ovaries—a condition that affects fertility, pregnancy, and the natural reproductive cycle—believe that when menopause comes, their symptoms will lessen. The Truth About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is considered the most common cause of female infertility. But, with proper diagnosis and treatment, many women with PCOS are able to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

  • Yes we can definitely cure it by yoga.Do yoga regularly.u can search yoga postures on internet and pray God. Everything will be from INDIA ��‍♀️��‍♀️

  • Hey doctor Jones, could you please address some of the correlations between pcos and depression. How ocps could exacerbate the mood swings and low moods especially in a person with preexisting depression.

  • Nice video. In Ayurvedic system of medicine, the treatment of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is possible without any side effects. Planet Ayurveda offers PCOS Care Pack which is a non-hormonal, safe herbal formulation and very effective for PCOS.

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS at 18 and it was a bit of shock to me but my doctor told me not to worry it happens to most girls due to stress and actually most of the girls in my family got it but now they’re good and everything is fine with them and they’re happily married with kids but for me I’m 20 years old and still with the PCOS and I’m a little scared that it would lead to ovarian cancer. I really hope that whoever is diagnosed with any kind of disease to be cured soon and we all live our lives with good health��

  • I had a guy gynecologist who told me I may have it and now I have female gynecologist who is helping me get down to the source of the problem…. Recently found out my thyroid is out of whack That can be a big problem Too! so let’s see where it’s going,,,,,,I also tried Yonni pearls and steam������������

  • I’m 23 and I was diagnosed with pcos when I was around 18. I was put on birth control for 3 months and metformin. The gynaecologist told me that I’d probably have to take metformin lifelong and said there was nothing else that could be done. I’d just have to take meds and exercise to lose weight. But that didn’t help much with my irregular periods and cramps.
    Around what 2 years back, my mother got worried about being being constantly on meds and we went to another doctor. She did a series of tests on me and concluded that I didn’t have pcos. But like before, I still had irregular periods, which sometimes would result in be bleeding for 14-15 days. And the cramps were horrible.
    This year in Jan, I went to a endocrinologist. She listed down all my symptoms and consulted with the hospital’s gynaecologist and I am once again diagnosed with pcos.
    I wasn’t given birth control pills this time, but instead given meds that will apparently help my periods to start if I exceed 40+ days without it. I’m also back on metformin.
    I have gained almost 20+ kgs over the course of 4-5 years even though I’m not someone who eats much, and I cannot lose it no matter how hard I try. My periods still become irregular and the pain that comes with it can be unbearable, leaving me bedridden for days. I also suffer from acne which can go out of control at times and hairloss.
    To add to that, I have had atopic dermatitis ever since I was 13, and that just worsens my skin problems.
    As a girl in her 20s, this is really tough. Not being able to fit in pretty clothes and dresses, not being able to feel good about my skin, and overall feeling sick most of the time takes a big toll on my mental health. My anxiety can be overwhelming at times and my depression is always around the corner.

  • I know this is an older video but i was diagnosed with PCOS this year and this video really helped! Although i have alot or other symptoms that doctors cannot explain…i have the typical symptoms however i get a period every 2-3 months then ill bleed anywhere from 4-12 weeks…ive had to have alot of blood transfusion, i have insulin problems, kidney problems etc…i was told removing my overies could help but my doctor doesn’t think its nessasary but every day is a painful struggle!!! Im also allergic to every birth control ive tried and actually lost one of tubes due to the IUD…im 25 and in the hospital almost every month! Any advice on what to tell my doctor to get them to listen so im not just marching on with no solution?

  • I was barely diagnosed with PCOS at age 36 despite experiencing PCOS symptoms since menarche at age 11. It took reproductive endocrinology to diagnose me after over a year of infertility. Broke my heart how much I have been ignored as I would beg for answers to my extremely irregular and extremely painful periods throughout my lifetime. I was very skinny up until about age 26 where I started to work out like crazy and calorie restrict and somehow managed to defy the laws of physics not realizing that PCOS can be very tricky and that is not simply a matter of calories in versus calories out. Clinically based on my caloric intake I was anorexic the only thing that didn’t make me anorexic was motive. Later I would find out that with PCOS some women will gain weight if they calorie restricted too much and do too stressful of exercise such as what I was doing. I remember being told by physician after physician ‘even if you have PCOS it won’t matter until you’re trying to get pregnant so don’t worry about it until then’. I truly feel that those positions did me a disservice as my husband and I were forced to go to IVF in order to start our family, on the plus side I am now five weeks pregnant with our first and couldn’t be happier. Love your information!

  • I am diagnosed with PCOS and I got my. Every month and the only way I found out I was pregnant is I missed it when I was supposed to get it I have the flo app on my phone and that’s how I found out I was pregnant but I lost the babies

  • I was found to have a cyst the size of a cantaloupe that was gangrenous that was located on my fallopian tube not far from my right ovary. I was 13 at the time the cyst was found. I was not diagnosed with PCOS until 4 years later. I admittedly extreme case of PCOS where I have had so many painful cysts (most of which have burst on their own), I have found that I have to avoid soy and other high estrogen or phyto-estrogen containing foods or my breast size continues to go up, I went from a 44DDD to a 44M in just over 2 1/2 years. I was told several of these misconceptions but most of what I have learned I have had to figure out for myself.

  • It’s not Pcos, it’s P.C.O.S.. Also, a serious medical issue should NOT be voiced over by a child, it talks down to women. I agree with other posters about the terrible graphics. This video tells you NOTHING about the medical condition.

  • I used to have periods that were nonstop for a month plus when they’d come and months apart when they wouldn’t. I went to 5 OB’s here in Texas, had several scans where on my ovaries each time excessive amounts of little cysts were seen but no doctor would pull the trigger on the PCOS diagnosis. Through this my fiance and I were also trying to start a family which just wasn’t happening. Finally went to a general doctor, told her my issue and she ran all the test to confirm yes, I did indeed have pcos. She started me on a life style change focusing on diet and exercise and began me on the magic pill Metformin. Within a year I lost 75ibs and got pregnant. We had a miscarriage of that pregnancy, restarted the Metformin and within 3 months was repregnant. My sweet rainbow baby is due Jan 28th and I couldn’t be more excited. �� keep looking until you find a doctor who will listen and help you.

  • Drop your insta username (or any other way through which i can reach to you) if you wanna be in a PCOS group. This group will only be for people who are struggling/Struggled with PCOS/PCOD. I hope we will be able to help each other, share our experiences, share information and most importantly just support each other. ��

  • Hey this look pretty convincing, thank you. By the way did you take a look at Tilly Strankten’s website? there’s a method to feel energized and relaxed, and forgetting about the stabbing pain if that’s what you’re looking for. Usually takes 30-60 days to take full effect, even though you can begin feeling the relief in a week.

  • I have depression, anxiety, i gained a ton of weight over the past 3 years and have hair growth. I feel so lost and out of control. I went to a nutritionist and they literally told me to follow the food guide the appointment was so short, it wasnt helpful at all. I told my docotr about my hair growth and she just like haha get lazer removal before it turns grey, it just happens. They just want you out the door to pump as many patients through in a day as possible. So frustrating.

  • my periods have been irregular for forever but recently theyve been monthly like normal and now i havent had a period since march…:(

  • So, prior to and after my miscarriage in October, it was determined I had low progesterone. I just went for an ultrasound to check to see if I have cysts, ovarian torsion, and free fluid. There are no notes about cysts, but it says no evidence of the others. I just find it strange that my OBGYN only did estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid tests prior to doing the ultrasound and not doing androgen levels. My husband has Low Testosterone and he had his estrogen, FSH, LH, prolactin, etc tested when they were checking his testosterone.

  • to all the women having pcos don’t worry i have it too and got my period naturally and you will get your period naturally
    maintain a healthy protein rich diet and drink ground flax seeds with lime with warm water
    don’t forget to workout evry day

  • Thank you for sharing your story-I sent my niece this link because she is scared of turning into a so called reality star trying to convince the world her life is fabulous

  • Nowadays 2 to 3% of women are suffering from PCOS problem. In some cases, unhealthy food may lead to it. Some proper homeopathic remedies can cure this problem, and particularly in treating PCOS without any complications, Homeocare International is the best choice.

  • Your story is almost identical to mine. My heart goes out to you, I was in total despair for nearly 10 years before I finally got control of things. Thank you for sharing ��

  • I remember being overweight and having very irregular period, my doc didn’t even say a word about lifestyle change, just told me to take Diana-36 for a year because I won’t be able to get pregnant without it and I have to take it all my life. I did take it for a year, after getting off the pill got my period 2 times that month and then my period became as irregular as it was before. I started working out, drank a lot of water, started eating healthy (low carb, only unrefined carbs) and guess what? I get my period every month, on the same day!! No pain, no mood swings, like omg ��

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS last year, and I got a good laugh from the drawing of the PCOS cycle. The little “what’s that over there” loopdeloops is pretty much me every day, lol.

  • i was diagnosed with pcos sometime ago. since pcos is related to the endo system, it can overlap with autoimmune diseases. i also have hyperthyroidism so my endo doctor and gyno were both trying to solve my lack of periods issues but none of what they tried was helping me. turns out, earlier this year i was diagnosed with celiac disease and ever since i went on a gluten-free diet my periods have returned. i was on the mini-pill too for a while, maybe that helped a bit, but i stopped taking them because they made me feel really sick.

  • I started an instagram account (sabrina_plantbased) to share my pcos journey re. Weight loss and adult acne. Pls. Follow me if you want to know more about my struggles in the past. Sending love & light, Sabrina

  • I have P.C.O.S. and I rarely have a appetite but I make sure to eat but I don’t eat a lot or over eat and it’s so frustrating! I continue to either gain weight or can’t lose it so that sucks! But if anyone knows a good way to keep ur weight down or just not gaining any more, plz lmk I would love to find something. It’s so annoying that anything I do, just doesn’t seem to matter with my weight. However, I haven’t had money or insurance for the past 2 years so I need to get it so that I can see a Dr again, and get some kind of treatment. So any advice for my weight would be greatly appreciated!�� God bless you all and thanks for the video! Very helpful����

  • I also used to be extremely underweight and even though I had irregular periods, didn’t get pregnant after 6 years of unprotected sex, and my sister has pcos, when I went to get diagnosed the male doctor I had looked me up and down and said “No you would be fat if you had it” and refused to test me. I only got diagnosed AFTER I became obese.

  • Thank you lord for your blessings I’m now a mother on my own, also thank you so much Dr unuayan for your help you really a God sent too me your herbs is really working i promise too recommend people too you once i have mine now I’m doing what i promise God. Email him via “” [email protected] also he’s whatsApp number is +2348134647497.

  • I have PCOS and while I do have the “string of pearls” I’ve never had a cyst rupture. I haven’t ovulated in at least a year (I test ever day) so I’m getting worried about what may be happening with my body. I’m only 24 and hope to have a baby someday. I have most symptoms of PCOS including IR, extra hair on face but loss of hair on my head, weight gain and a few others.

  • To all women who struggle with infertility due to PCO: “Don’t give up hope!”
    I have PCOS and right now I am 7 months pregnant! We tried for over a year and I got pregnant naturally. There is hope, just don’t let Hope be taken away from you!

  • I’ve been going back and forth on whether I have PCOS or Hypothyroidism based on my symptoms. My periods are usually 5-6 weeks apart, though once or twice a year sometimes I will go 8-10 weeks between cycles. I do ovulate (based on my BBT and OPKs). My BBT runs low. 96.9 on average for my follicular phase and 97.9 for my luteal phase. I suffered a miscarriage 7 and a half years ago, had an abnormal pap smear 7 years ago, and have suffered from infertility for the last 7 and half years since my miscarriage. I am overweight, but I haven’t always been. That’s only occurred in the last 4 years. I don’t have excess body hair. My mom had PCOS. I do feel like I have low libido and energy in general. More likely PCOS or Hypothyroidism? I’ve heard that they are correlated, but is there any big key symptom difference?

  • I’m 16 and last year I was diagnosed with pcos. I have a regular period every month and I’m not particularly overweight just 3 or 4 kg.
    I had really bad acne since I was 11 but now it’s better I just have the scars.
    I’m keeping a healthy diet but I spend most of my time studying for school so I can’t really exercise a lot I I’m struggling to loose those 4 Kg.
    This thing makes me struggle a lot mentally I’m stressed everytime I have to go outside at the thought that people see me and potentially judge me, and some days when I look in the mirror seeing that nothing changes is really tough to deal with.
    Also the possibility of infertility really scares me and makes me sad cause when I’ll grow up I would really love to have a family.
    I know that a lot of people with this Syndrom have worse problems than I do cause I’m healthy at the end of the day, some kg that I can’t loose aren’t a big deal but it makes me feel so bad mentally and I don’t know how to fix it.
    I’m sorry if I seem delusional or childish cause I should just work out but it’s not that easy.
    Having good grades, being the smart one etc has always been the most important thing for me so taking away time from school it’s really not easy for me.

    (I’m Italian so if there are some mistakes forgive my English I’m still learning it.
    You can correct me I appreciate it cause I can improve. )

  • It’s true I was unfortunately diagnosed with pcos but I don’t have cysts I was told…but I don’t ovulate or I guess I don’t no when it occurs I’m taking progesterone and metformin do you have any advice for me in trying to conceive?

  • They told me i can never have kids because of that hormone balance i gave up i did everything they asked me nothing,age 38 i got pregnant i have a daughter and a son

  • My other ovary got removed when i was 16 because of blood cloth blocking my fallopian tube and now 4 yrs later i’m scared that i will not get pregnant if i don’t live healthy so i’m trying to lose weight atm. Hoping for the best

  • I have PCOS and MDJ hits every question or problem I’ve ever had. However I didn’t know about the cancer risk. I was diagnosed when I was 18. Metformin never helped me but I’ve been kept on it to help prevent diabetes. I still stay in the pre diabetic A1C level range. The question I have to widest range of answers is.. Which is best for PCOS, to stay on BCP or stay off them? My uterine lining stays thick even with regular periods. So what’s up with that?

  • PCOS is common and affects 10 to 15% of women in childbearing age. PCOS tends to cause irregular menstrual cycles and sometimes irregular bleeding, excessive hair on the face and body. You would also notice an excessive loss of hair on the scalp, but there is unusual hair growth in areas such as hands, chest, face, stomach, back, and toes. Homeocare International has experience of treating the large number of women suffering from PCOS and controlling it in a natural way.

  • PCOS since I was in highschool ; irregular periods ; facial hair ; heavy bleeding ; painful periods & recently difficulty sleeping. Been on the pill ; been operated on in the past to have them removed, my gynae suggests I lose weight.

  • I love the last question! I have PCOS, but got pregnant on my second cycle(about 6 months of tracking and trying) of trying to conceive! We figured we’d give it a shot for a little bit and see if it worked without needing to medicate for ovulation and it did!

  • Am trying for 1 yr to get pregnant i have 1 child but after 16 yrs,am ready for another baby. I decided to go to the doc and found out i have mild pcos. Nw that explains y i have facial hair and acne. Am nw having to understand my body and deal with trying to get pregnant with doc help. Not to mention losing weight which i didn’t realize was because of pcos. Wish me luck. U conquered it and i am confident i can.

  • Well definitely not���� I’m sitting here currently pregnant with my 2nd at 23 years old.
    I’m not on metformin or anything else. I’m pretty fucking fertile lol

  • I wish there are more doctors like you. I’ve been dealing with pcos since I was 12 and the pain from cramps, bleeding for 3 months straight or not bleeding for 6 years sucks! I keep gaining weight and can’t lose the weight. I wish you were my doctor.

  • I was told by my gyno, when I was diagnosed with pcos at the age of 17, that I had pcos BECAUSE I was overweight, not the other way around. I recently lost around 15% of my bodyweight and my symptoms only got worse because of stress in other areas in my life lol which caused me to gain some of the weight back afterwards (despite no change in my diet).

  • it’s such a common thing, but why are there no videos of more women speaking out about it? more people need to know that this exists and that for some women it’s horrible.

  • Wow!! this almost made me cry. I was diagnosed with PCOS 3 years ago and I just felt upset, confused, worried..and it didnt help when the doctors told me it leads to infertility, won’t be able to have kids naturally, I would grow excessive hair…I just wanted to ignore the fact that I had it. But now I’ve been doing more research and seeing more doctors! I am currently looking for a diet plan but overall, I know how frustrating it can be and also the thoughts of feeling like youre the only one with it but then I started meeting people who has PCOS and have CHILDREN!! That gave me so much hope especially after finding ways to better cope with it. I get so hype when my period comes on and I still get my face waxed but I learned to not let my PCOS define me!!

  • I have to get checked here periods don’t come every month, and it’s been worrying me. I haven’t had a period for 3 months now, and I had spoken to my mother about it. Apparently my mother has had PCOS since she was 17, she is 37 now. My oldest sister has it, and there is a possibility that I do. I’ve been so nervous, I’ll update after my appointment. Wish me luck.

  • Homeopathy cures pcod…….y were u not aware of…….public open eyes…..homeopathy cures many diseases on earth………its true…… eyes

  • I’m 14 (nearly 15) and I got diagnosed with PCOS a few months ago. I’m still trying to figure out what it is and how it effects me. the thing is I have tried doing some “diets” that are for PCOS and I can never stay on them. same with the workouts, I start something and two days later I’ve had enough. after watching this video, it has given me motivation to research more ways to treat or be able to lose weight. hopefully I can stay on the diets and workouts and lose the weight I want to and have a stable, healthy lifestyle.

  • Honestly, idk what’s going on with my uterus, i haven’t had periods in 2.5 months and when it finally started it lasted 42 DAYS. I lost so much blood, it caused low blood pressure and weakness. Periods were painless but there was A LOT of blood. My doctor gave me just blood stopping pills. But still the worst part is, when i went to see a doctor i got infected with covid-19, IN THE HOSPITAL even though i did everything to protect myself, it came out being useless bc my immune system was feeling bad. And then again I haven’t had periods in 2 months, and when it started it got worse bc i have crumps and pain.
    It really is confusing without proper doctor checking what’s going on, and i have to sit and guess is it Pcos or endometriosis?

  • Hi There Doc. Thank you. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and i have acne. My OBGYN recommended pills for my flow and birth control because I told him I dont want a child anytime soon. I am 26 years and I cannot help it but worry that what if in the next 2 years or so I want to have kids but cant have them. But reading people’s comments gives me hope. Thank you

  • My doctor told me I have a hormone imbalance some time my periods last for months ( sometimes up to 6 months straight heavy flow) sometimes my periods skip months. I think I have pcos

  • You are so beautiful and amazing.
    I am sorry for your diagnosis, but the strength you have shown in the face of this is absolutely admiral.
    I have the problem where I cant gain weight. Ppl ALWAYS say “that’s a PROBLEM?!”
    Yes. Yes it is. I cannot look healthy. I always get looks from people who think that if my face is broke out and I am skinny….I am a crack head or a meth addict.
    That hurts.
    Worst of all, I have passed these traits on to my 2 girls. They struggle just to appear a healthy weight. I gave my babies that and endometriosis. I didnt plan to pass this problem on, and I feel even more terrible because of it.
    I understand, and I am proud of all of us women who stand tall and fight every day to get themselves diagnosed and heard.
    Good Job girl!

  • I went to my Gyno about my periods being 60 days long and heavy then no period for two months and it goes like that on and off it was just so random.
    Well I was told there’s the three categories like you said and I have 3/3 after my ultrasound and was eventually diagnosed along with on the border of getting Diabetes. I have an insulin resistance.
    First for my periods they put me on norethindrone 10 days on, 14 days off just for my period so I could possibly conceive. After being diagnosed officially I was put on metformin ER 500mg 1 with lunch, 2 with dinner.
    I’ve started to cut out more carbs as recommended by my doctor and no sugar!
    It’s super hard with a 3 y/o step child but my boyfriend does have diabetes but we are struggling really bad with cheaper meals. ��

  • Pcos & insulin resistant. Seeing my gynecologist and nutritionist monthly & love your videos!! I hate being shamed for being on metformin because its the one thing that has seemed to help me and everyone loves to scream at me about how bad it is for me.

  • Recently diagnosed with presumed PCOS after symptoms most of my life….but didnt realize was PCOS and doctors ignored symptoms or only focused on my weight (always been “curvy”….but in younger years was much lower in weight….but large busted, short, and curvy so all drs saw was not skinny). Had regular periods until 31….so assumed all was well…but had some odd hair growth (mainly not on face) since my teens…..but assumed normal. Early 20’s began to show signs if insulin resistence….but AC1 and blood sugars tested typical….and drs just blamed size. 31 got my first 2 uterine polyps and thyroid started to die. Bled for 8 months wuthout stopping before surgery. But ovaries supposedly looked typical. Increased insulin resistance symptoms…tests still typical. Went on the pill to avoid regrowth of polyps. Started to not have period except every 6 months, again, to avoid regrowth. Realized then that i had akways had presumptive PMDD. Weight starts to slowly increase with pill and unknown at the time, thyroid dying. Diagnosed hypothyroid by 36….took 4 drs to finally get treatment though. One literalky yold me i needed to gain 50 more pounds and lose my hair before he would treat me. My thyroid level was high 7’s. 9 is the highest they can get!! Moved and finally got a dr willing to treat hypothyroid enough to get my levels far closer to typical. But symptoms of insulin resisyance and weight gain continue to ramp up. Tried to seek help for weight gain but insurace wont cover anything. Finally….in Jan of this year A1C displays pre diabetic levels…
    and thyroid levels wont budge to closer to typical….and start getting worse. Try to get some treatment for pre diabetes….but keep.hitting insurance walls. My sister suggested looking into pcos cause of my early history….even though id had regular periods. Luckily endo jumped on board quickly and started metformin with presumptive diagnosis!!! Within. 6 weeks of starting metformin thyroid is back to typical levels, A1c is improved, and im feeling better. Then, literally, first day of quarantine, after going off birth control for planned 6 month period…i start bleeding again. Heavy!! Bleed for a month!!! OB takes me off birth control and puts me on strong amount if hormone to get bleeding under control. Again….uterine polyp. Have surgery and IUD placed. BUT….lose some weight!! Not a ton….but first time losing anything in 10 years!! Now im having regular periods again…not really lighter…although so far symptoms of PMDD have not rerurned. Still working on calorie decrease…but overall feel better than i have in years. So grateful for metformin and levo!! And for a dr who is willing to treat presjmptive diagnosus of PCOS even though my symptoms dont match all the criteria the dr discussed in this video. i personally believe the criteria needs to be expanded because i have met so many women like myself with atypical symptomology over time…..yet benefit so much once thet find a dr willing to listen and treat presumptively!!!!

  • I remember the day I got diagnosed. I came home and told my mom. She just said, “so what? It’s not that big of a deal. My doctor said I had that once.” It’s frustrating having your own mother invalidating your medical struggles. Mine is way more severe than hers. I have the full “string of pearls” and I’m slightly insulin resistant despite living pretty healthy.

  • I started my cycle in 5th grade and it was very irregular and painful. The only thing that I was prescribed is birth control and it served no justice. I experienced my cycle for two months straight before my doctor told me to stop taking it. Now I am 24 and I have the worst pains. My doctor believes I have PCOS and I am scheduled to obtain an ultrasound. They also believe I have endometriosis. I have severe pains and I need help immediately.

  • I’ve been on birth control since I was 15. I’m 21 now and I’m so frustrated. I take like 5 pills every night and I have so much body hair. it’s really messing me up mentally lately to the point where I sit down and just cry cause I’m that tired. I don’t know what to do anymore

  • Oh my I love her…! I went to three doctors, one said I might have PCOS, one just treated me as if I had PCOS and then 8 years later, when I finally changed doctors because I had moved just said you do not have PCOS ovaries.. I still have all the symptoms though and now I’m not sure what to do. I still feel attached to the PCOS community because it just makes sense to me, but I guess it is back to the drawing board.

  • I’ve been diagnosed with pcos when I was seventeen and I haven’t had a period was put on birth control but stopped taking it and I haven’t had in two to three years but I don’t have health insurance to get the help I need and now I’m worried ��

  • I am a 17 yr old and have a bit more hairs on my body, as compare to other girls.i have few facial hairs but they are very thin n also on my back. Can anybody please tell me if I m suffering from pcos.i have my period very regularly which most lasts for 3-4 days

  • I had pcos since 2007 and also I’m diabetic type 2 diagnosed july 2018 and I’m been struggling getting pregnant and I had 2 miscarriages and I weight 225 pounds embarrassing and what the best way get pregnant with pcos and plus size girl trying to conceive? Any method. Help!!!!!!

  • 1:14 of the way thru… And already, sis I feel you… And thank u so freaking much for making this video �� I’ve had pcos since 6th grade…

  • Is it usual a gynecologist who diagnoses this, my endocrinologist diagnosed me? I feel like I have none of these symptoms. But I would love to talk to you and see what you would suggest to me on a few things about this and other problem. I have quite a few medical issues. But every suggestion or “advice” I’ve been give my some doctor has never worked mainly because they won’t listen to the fact that there are things I can’t do.

  • Thank you for making this video. I might try seeing a different ob/gyn. I had been having a lot of digestion problems around the same time as I was having irregularities with my cycle and while they were imaging my lower abdomen on an MRI for my digestion problems, they found a lot of cysts and wrote on the incidental findings that it was indicative of PCOS. But when I went to the ob/gyn she told me because I wasn’t hairy I couldn’t have PCOS despite the fact I have other symptoms that could potentially be related to PCOS and she was really dismissive when I tried to question her on it. I also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (diagnosed by a different doctor) so I see a lot of doctors and have had a lot of hit or miss with doctors taking me seriously.

  • I think this is what I have so I’m probably going to get tested. I’m not worried about infirtility kids aren’t part of my plan, it’s any other stuff that might happen.

  • I don’t have irregular menstrual cycle
    I don’t have hair on body or face,
    But still I’ve been diagnosed with multi cyst in ovaries, why?

  • I feel like nobody talks about how hard it is to have pcos when you also have an eating disorder. with so many people saying “just eat less” and “you’ll feel better if you lose weight” it makes my relationship with food that much worse. does anyone else feel like this too?

  • How would you help a patient of AMA with PCOS and Lynch Syndrome increase her chances of ovulating and/or increase her fertility in general?

  • Soooooo I have had missed periods for months at a time, horrible painful rupturing cysts every three or four months, extra facial hair and been over weight. Does this sound like pcos?
    I wanna add that most of these symptoms have gone away for the most part after dropping 190lbs.
    I couldn’t get pregnant till I lost all that weight(thus I didn’t know I was prego the first time till I was seven months along haa), but the facial hair really sucks any advice?

  • Great explanation. In addition LH: FSH ratio increase substantially… FSH also potentiates the development of testosterone via steroidogenesis (hence the hirsutism)

  • I’m scared and confused. I’m 17, my stomach would always hurt day and night so my doc told me To get a ultrasound and i might have pcos. So now i gotta go to a gynecologist. I’m concerned how do they treat. Never been to a gynecologist and very insecure about my body. So can anyone of y’all tell me will the gynecologist do?

  • I’d love to see a video about PCOS vs Polycystic Ovaries. I have multiple cysts on my ovaries, but I don’t meet either of the other two criteria! I’d love some more information about polycystic ovaries and what to do to help ��

  • Hl to all the mom in the house,

  • My partner has PCOS and is trans, and except for the intense irregular periods actually desires many of the effects of the elevated androgens because that is what feels comfortable and natural to their body. Basically group 3. Before they were out for most of their adult life they were heavily pressured to take medication to manage their symptoms (group 2) so they could be more “typically feminine”. Even before they were diagnosed they were pressured in to taking birth control as a teenager to control their acne. One of the things we wonder about when we talk about it is if this negatively affected their development and if their body would be more masculine if their puberty had been allowed to take its natural course. Thoughts?

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels.
    Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant.
    PCOS also causes hair growth on the face and body, and baldness. And it can contribute to long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Advocate for yourself! I had a laprosocip exploratory surgery to check for endometriosis that came back negative, my blood tests were fairly normal and my paps were only abnormal a couple of times, my gyno said he didn’t know what was wrong and it took two years for me to hear about PCOS (from a PA at an urgent care) I immediately called my gyno and demanded testing for it, two ultrasounds and more blood work later i was diagnosed (he said I had the most cysts he’d ever seen) I’m not saying my gyno was incompetent but if I hadn’t made them test for it I probably would never of been diagnosed!

  • I’ve learned so much from your video
    Thank you so much for sharing
    I have PCOS and hypothyroidism and live in Hawaii with limited resources so I do alot of research for myself and your video gave me alot of information…

  • Can’t believe how much has changed in just 2months. I am more in control of my PCOS, my endometriosis flares have got better and slowly my weight is dropping making things easier to manage… Dr. Richard herbal product is really more of better than all of what medical practitioners have been prescribing for me…am well so happy for purchasing his herbs…it’s best if you are facing any issues of ovarian syndrome and Infertility you should try reaching out to him as I did on Whatsapp or probably via email… Here is his WhatsApp number +2348129605087. Think it’s worth trying

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2005 and it has been a roller coaster. i have a You Tube channel where I have made a couple videos regarding this matter where i talk about my dread and depression from the fact that I was unable to conceive even after trying for years, the shame and blame that went with it to the pain that is excess facial hair that I struggle with until this day. I invite you all to come, take a listen & share any comments or stories you would like to share. There are many like us, and that gave me comfort in those early days. there is hope and we do not have to suffer in silence

  • I just got check up 3 days ago and found out that i have PCOS. And i feel like scared and everynight i cried. Please cheer me up ����

  • What are we eating or breathing in the air that so many woman have PCOS??.. I was 24 when I had my child, everything was normal before then. After my pregnancy I gained so much weight, I had taken out the IUD thinking it was just that. I lost 10lbs but then gained it all and + back and my cycle ALWAYS been regular, except when I was pregnant. My cycles always have been painful before and after pregnancy. My Dr. Told me I was pre diabetic because of the way i gained all that weight. I have gained 50lbs within 12 yrs, have some facial hair and thin hair…. do I really have PCOS or tiroids problems?

  • Can you suddenly get it? Or are you born with it? Because I’ve had irregular periods my whole life but recently it became worrisome since I’ve been getting cramps, sensitive breasts, but no blood. I have a few hairs on my chin but not crazy amount I’ve always been pretty hairy because of my dads side or so I believe but my weight isn’t too hard to manage… what concerns me the most is the pains but not blood I’m hoping it isn’t anything bad ��

  • I have regular periods and have been diagnosed with PCOS today. It’s crazy how different pcos is to everyone. I have the anxiety depression weight gain, muscle gain, hair loss, body acne

  • I went through excatly this when I was getting diagnosed with pcos thank you for drawing it out because it makes it easier to explain to people. I been diagnosed with pcos for about two years now and I’m still learning new things about it every day. I do have a good doctor she gave me the basic information about pcos but I still like to learn new things so that I can better take care of myself and I can be more open to asking questions.

  • Seriously, just opening this up and hearing “looking back it all makes sense” hits SO close to home. After struggling with symptoms, I got my official diagnosis 5 months ago. It’s been such a battle, but knowing we’re not alone is so helpful! And wonderful women like you!

  • i have pcos and was told by my doctor that my chances of getting pregnant were very slim. after only 3 months of marriage and unprotected sex i got pregnant with our first baby due in january! i just cant believe how misinformed i was to think i couldnt get pregnant. it broke my heart but now im so happy to be expecting a little bundle of joy soon!

  • I recently got “diagnosed” with this too. I say “diagnosed” because nobody sat me down and talked to me or explained anything. They just called me on the phone and skipped right to the “here take this medication” part which is incredibly frustrating and confusing. Like, can you just tell me I have it or not???

    I was diagnosed of HERPES virus and i have tried all I can to get cured but all to no avail,, until I saw a post in a health forum about a herbalist man who prepare herbal medications to cure all kind of diseases including HERPES virus,at first I doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try,when I contacted this herbalist via his email and he prepared a HERPES herbal cure and sent it to me via UPS courier courier service, when I received this herbal medicine, he gave me step by direction on how to apply it,after applying the way I was instructed, I was totally cured of this deadly disease called HERPES, all thanks to Dr rokpokpo this great herbal doctor via WhatsApp him Via: 2347054115931

  • I will be having my ultrasound the next day since the medication I’ve been taking wasn’t effective. I am nervous if I have PCOS. I have no excessive hair but I’ve been having so much acne. I am literally crying right now, I am so scared.

  • Can’t believe how much has changed in just 2months. I am more in control of my PCOS, my endometriosis flares have got better and slowly my weight is dropping making things easier to manage… Dr. Richard herbal product is really more of better than all of what medical practitioners have been prescribing for me…am well so happy for purchasing his herbs…it’s best if you are facing any issues of ovarian syndrome and Infertility you should try reaching out to him as I did on Whatsapp or probably via email… Here is his WhatsApp number +2348129605087 and his email is [email protected]

  • I just got diagnosed with PCOS yesterday, I was diagnosed with PMDD 5 years ago and to me it would make sense that because of my PCOS its causing the PMDD �� Doctor couldn’t confirm this but its something thats been on my mind all night

  • Hi I have pcos and I find it so hard to talk about it. I just scanned that people around me well look at me different, it’s just hard dealing with everything I’m going through and also dealing with the people mocking me about the amount of weight I’m caning

  • I haven’t had period for 5 years, I’ve got facial hair, I’m obese, no acne outbreak just normal 1-2 acne a month?? I know that’s too long for me not to notice that this isn’t Normal anymore I’m just so scared going to an OB i don’t like someone touching me nor hug me it wierds and annoys me out, then I’m gonna go there let her touch me put something there It scares the sh*t out of me to some people it’s just nothing I’m overreacting but It’s a big deal for me

  • I’m 23 yo and I have been hairy and overweight since my teenhood despite my very active and healthly lifestyle (no alcohol, no fats, no sweets, plently of sport and natural food..) and I always struggled and been depressed due to my appereance cause I felt like I could do nothing about it and everyone in my family kept denying the problem and saying thay it was me that I was over reacting and making stuff in my mind. Today, for the 1st time my new doctor came out with “I think it may be policystic ovaries” and all dots made even more sense than before and people are starting to believe me FINALLY after YEARS. I wasted so much time due to incompetent doctors and my family in absolute distrust and denial..
    It is a bittersweet feeling, I am happy but I also am very sad cause way too often women aren’t believed to have such a disease (I’ve seen many and I know many myself).

  • I’ve just been diagnosed with PCOS after asking my doctor for help with long heavy periods and fatigue for many years. I’d hazard a guess and say I’ve likely had this since my teens but they’ve never done such a thorough check as they have now, when I’m in my early 30s. Still figuring out how to deal with things… Gp is suggesting metformin and/or BC pill while TCM is suggesting herbs and diet changes. I’m going to take the herbs route for now and we’ll see:)

  • I’m literally 13 now was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 11. I have some some sort of period like sickness that goes on like Every Single Day. Meaning I have to wear my pad everyday. It’s really hard since I’m still 13 and I have an irregular period and most of the time have high fatigues. I still for some reason dunno how I’m dealing with this since my 11th age……
    I just dont want anyone with PCOS to feel about it and have negative thoughts. Cuz negative thoughts makes everything worse

  • I was just diagnosed with PCOS by my doctor after an ultrasound revealed cysts in my ovaries, but my doctor explained to me that my blood test results showed my testosterone levels were quite low and not high at all? I’m slightly confused as I thought PCOS caused high levels of testosterone? Is anyone able to explain, I feel so lost by what she told me as because of COVID I haven’t been able to have any face to face appointments only rushed 5 minute calls over the phone.

  • Having pcos is extremely hard as a female,especially teenagers. I got my first period when i was 10 and until 11,my cycles were very irregular(could be once per 2 weeks or 2 months) and i thought it was normal. In 6th grade/primary 6,i was preparimg for my end of year leaving examination to go to secondary school/high school(?) and was incredibly stressed. My period didnt come for 11 month straight and my mom knew something was up. Went to the clinic,got a hormonal pill prescripton,after one cycle went back to normal which my period didnt come for another 4 months. Went back for another prescription,didnt work so i went back for a 3rd time when i was 13. This time they sent me to the hospital to get it checked out. At that time,i gained a significantly amount of weight,10-11kg to be exact. They did many blood tests,many ultrasounds,ruled out the possibility of thyroid conditions,and my testosterone levels were normal,they didnt find anything wrong so they just gave me hormonal pills and sent me home. Again,it didnt work so i went back to the hospital where they did another ultrasound where they officially diagnosed me with pcos. It was hard,really hard. I cant enjoy what other teenagers enjoy,like going out for pizza and chicken. I could eat those things,but i would feel guilty. The doctor told me i had to lose all the weight i gained,but i was stress eating at that time,so i have no idea how to lose it. Every biology class,every period talk between friends and sexual education were all so foriegn to me,i should be thinking tat that could happen to me,but im thinking,oh,that CANT happen to me,right? Whenever i tell my friends i need to eat pills to get my period,they look at me weirdly,like im some alien. Recently,i found out that my grandma has cervical cancer,which 3 of my grandaunts have too. I feel worried about my condition,but i feel like im overly worried about being next in linr for cancer/not being able to enjoy my teen years. Im 14 now,still havent lost the weight but sustained it. Nothing has changed. I cant seem to find anyone that i know and talk about pcos as none of my close friends or relatives have it. Coming to the comments,reading each other’s stories,warmed my heart and i know thst im not alone

  • Hi I’m 17 and I just got diagnosed with PCOS, my case thankfully is “light” but to anyone younger than me I just want to let you know that if you feel something in you is off or something is not right seek to your parents or doctors, I am so great full that I was diagnosed somehow soon and not finding out in worse circumstances, sending love and support to everyone ��������❤️❤️❤️

  • When I was 15 I had my first period after that I never had one on my own once a year I take pavera (excuse my spelling )to have a period in never came on my own in my thirties I tried 5 rounds of IUI’s then two IVF cycles they diagnosed me PCOS after second first ivf second ivf I got pregnant lost baby then age 38 I met my second husband and magically my period started on its own every month and my second husband got me pregnant in 3 months but they baby died 18 weeks now my period went away almost I hat one 5 month ago now it’s gone again I have weight gain again spotting after intercourses neasea I thinking pcos acting up my mom made it to 8 months pregnant had several negative blood pregnancy test she had pcos to could I be pregnant

  • I have pcos and I’ve had it since I was 12 but didn’t get diagnosed until 15 and it made me pretty worried because I never knew what it was and was scared because I had missed/stopped getting my period. Also having very bad acne and putting a lot of Weight on

    But u most eat healthy..more protein less carbs

  • I was diagnosed last year but since Feb this year my period is nowhere to be found ’til today… i gotta do something:( stress/depression/anxiety just sad!!!

  • Im 16 and I have all the symptoms of PCOS but my doctor didnt diagnose me with PCOS she said my ovaries in the ultrasound looked normal but my testosterone levels were high and which were like if I was a man. I honestly got so sad like what? I have irregular periods, excessive hair, non stop acne I dont know what to think anymore ��

  • I have PCOS and i follow the Keto diet (low-carb diet). I know it works because before I have to take the daily pill to have period or else I don’t know when it will come, it’s so irregular. After 2 and a half months of not getting my period, I decided to do Keto again (I’ve done it before but I gave up) and just after 1-2 weeks of doing it, I have my period again. Now I’m following a low-carb diet, I cut out all sugar and carb; I still eat fruits. I think it’s important not to stress out mis-eating something too much, it’s okay to treat yourself something sweet or have carbs once in a while ( in the weekend) ’cause I want to commit to this for a long time. I have never felt this good for such a long time, cutting out sugar is the best decision in my life.

  • I’ve been struggling with my weight all my life. I also have hirsutism and amenhorrea and I’ve been put through tests basically every year since I was eleven because I am a prime example of PCOS symptoms, but it never came out positive.

  • Thank you for sharing this. I have 2 friends diagnosed with PCOS and I am also concerned if I have it. �� My menstrual cycle is irregular and that bothers me as well.

  • I started taking myo d chiro inositol. Man that stuff changed my life. Also suffered from pcos. But wayyyyy better now. It helped me.

  • I don’t want children so I don’t need treatment to regulate my periods but I have hirsutism and female pattern baldness and am obese and can’t lose weight no matter what I try. I tried metformin, it did nothing. I want to try anti androgens but my GP won’t prescribe them.

  • Jut so you know, eating right doesn’t work for everyone. I’ve ended up in the emergency room because of how heavy my period is and after 2 years, multiple doctors, eating different diets nothing has worked. Ahaha love life.

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS in July 2019 but I know I have had it years prior to my diagnosis. It is now Aug 2020 and I finally understand what the hell it is. THANK YOU.

  • Tbh at first I didn’t know why I would get my periods so late like I’d get them 3 4 months late… hearing why I’m not able to is pretty scaring but very informative and I really appreciate someone making this video ����

  • 17 years ago my mother was in a hospital bed, about to get a hysterectomy because she had pcos and endometriosis. minutes before she was going to be put under, the doctor walks in and tells her she was pregnant. the doctor herself said that the chances of my mother having me was like a piece of sand on the beach. she was told years before that day that she would never be able to have a child.

  • Had bad acne a few years ago, a friend suggested a hormone problem because she had that issue, i was like ok due for regular check up anyway ill ask while im there. Never had been to this doctor as i had just moved, went in was in maybe 15 minutes, no tests no scans nothing, and she goes “yah you got pcos” im like what? She said because i missed my cycle every so often, that i had it, even though i could track when i was going to have a “missed” month. She ignored the fact i said i get my next monthly on the day it stopped the month prior not the day it started. So example if it stopped on the 31st but the next month only had 30 days then I’d get it sometime between the 1st and the 3rd the month after resulting in a “missed” month. 100% trackable and still about the same number of days between. Went to a different doctor for a second opinion she said she was shocked that she told me that, and that while outside of what is deemed “common” or “normal” it seemed it was normal for me because it had been that way since i was about 13/14 years old and that my acne was caused by over active sweat glands and reccomended dermetologist who reccomended a facewash, which has worked.

  • overall the music is too loud and pathetic, the perfect model looking girl in the video is not a good representation of someone with pcos, has no pimples isn’t overweight and has healthy hair. This video is very poorly made. A big dislike from me!��

  • i was diagnosed with PCOS last year but it’s weird because i don’t really relate with a lot of the symptoms. many women mentioned that they have super irregular periods, but for me, my periods are regular but there are a lot of spotting that occurs randomly. sometimes before sometimes after my period. it’s super annoying to deal with. i’m going to see another doctor once the quarantine ends:)

  • So this has me worried about what my doctor has recommended to me. She said “Typically we want you to have a period every 3 months” is she wrong? seems like a long time and ive heard most doctors say ” Your period has to be regular month to month”

  • I’m 16 and found out I had PCOS almost 3 months ago. My gyno didn’t explain what it was but he put me on birth control bc he said it’ll make it easier for me to have babies in the future. I personally don’t want kids but I found it weird that he didn’t explain what it was or how it can affect me and the only reason for treating it was so I could have kids in the future. It was my first gyno appointment and I don’t know what normally happens. For me, the birth control did give me back my period but I’m getting painful cramps. I’m going back next month for a follow up so I’ll tell him. I’m just scared that he will just say that I need to suck it up so I can have kids in the future.

  • I was only diagnosed when I met one criteria, the abnormal hair growth, nothing else was mentioned or ruled out and no lab results where done. I did ask if they needed to do anything but they said no…could my abnormal hair growth and adult acne be from somthing else??! I did not have irregular periods.

  • I have all the symptoms except one. And I’m 19 this has been going on since I was 16 and now I’m actually going to the doctors to see if I really have it and I know I do I just want to make sure and it’s time for a change in my lifestyle. This won’t be an easy journey y I will pull through this.

  • I am so happy to see this video. I have insulin resistant pcos and it is so incredibly hard to tell people what all this entails. I will simply forward a link to this video from now on.

  • Is it possible to have large cysts without pcos. I had 3 large cysts rupture my Fallopian tubes. I’ve had to have both removed and will never have kids now. My gp said I haven’t got pcos though.

  • Your strength is inspirational! PCOS is a horrible disease, I have a few friends with it. Watching their struggles is heartbreaking. I have endometriosis, which is also a “female parts” disease, and the frustration of living with an “invisible” disease is real. As women (and as humans even) we need to communicate and share with each other. Putting the word out on these diseases can help so many others struggling with the same thing. You are so beautiful and inspirational, keep it going girl!!

  • I wish this type of information was available when I was diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago. I was left feeling completely helpless and given none of this information, there was also a lot less of it available online at the time. Lucky for me I did find a great nutritionist and community and have been able to manage 90% of my symptoms with diet. It is sad to hear though from my friends who get diagnosed and so many women online that doctors don’t really provide the type of information described in this video. It is usually just a prescription without the information that would help a person determine if the prescription is right for them. I am very happy that I have figured out what works for me and hope the same for everyone else with PCOS.

  • I have has pcos since I was 15. I have been trying to concieve since the last 12 years. I am 27 now. Had one miscarriage in 2013 at six weeks and haven’t had anything since. Me and my husband are patient. But my pcos depresses me all the time. I am upset and sick of life TBH. Makes me feel less of woman. Tried loosing weight which I did. I lost 22kg. It didn’t change anything. It made me more depressed. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2015 when I was 21. So I have that to deal with too. Life ey. I hope God blesses me with a child soon. Amen, I have lost hope, but I still try to believe.

  • I have PCOS since I started with my period but I have a normal life (when the period comes it hurts a lot). I started to use evening primrose oil pearls and it got a lot better, I am vegetarian as well which I think helps a lot. Now I’m waiting my first child and the conception was really fast (at my 2nd cycle).

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS because I had ultrasound findings and periods that were inconsistent (26 day cycle one month, 34 day cycle the next) along with pain. Is that still PCOS even though I was technically getting a period every month? The pill has helped with the pain.

  • i´m 14 and i´m not pretty sure if i have PCOS. I´ve been concerned about my body hair since this year, i have it on my back, my thighs, my chest, my sthomach, my hands, my cheeks… it´s not thic tho, it´s actually pretty thin, but it still bothers me a lot and makes me uncomfortable! I also have kinda bad smell on my armpits. My period is okay and i don´t have acne or obesity. I´ve doing a lot of research about it, and i really don´t know what to do ��

  • I loved your drawing. It reminded me of how I perceive ADD. I was diagnosed with ADD in fourth grade and PCOS a little over a month ago (at 32yo). I see that there are many studies showing children of mothers with PCOS have a higher occurrence of ADD/ADHD as well as Autism Spectrum Disorder. Other studies I found linked women with PCOS and anxiety/depression and a couple other mental health diagnoses. However, it seems like there could be a link between women who have ADD/ADHD and PCOS. I can’t find studies specifically for that. Have you seen any?

  • I love how you illustrated your story! Sharing your story will help so many others that are going through the same thing. Also, I have never tried this product, but another YouTuber I watch talks about using Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast Seasoning as a replacement for cheese. It’s gluten free and dairy free. It might be something you might want to try. A life with no cheese has to be difficult. I wish you the best with your journey through PCOS and look forward to more videos!

  • i was diagnosed with ovarian cyst on my left ovary lat 2017
    my doctor advised to have my left ovary be removed (can’t remember the term)
    i had my tests, transV ultrasound, blood tests
    then my doctor told me that I also have PCOS

    she told me that I need to have my both ovaries br removed (hysterectomy) i hope im right with the term��

    me that was afraid to have it removed never came back to that doctor��
    till now i haven’t gone to a OBGYN again

  • Muja 3 saal se pcod thi, sab medicne try kiya kuvh nahi hua, Last me Our Ayurveda name ki company ka ayurvdic medicne le 4 months, 4 months Khana ka baad meri pcod ki problem thik ho gayi,
    Ummed nahi thi muja 1% be But acha results mila

  • My period lasted for three weeks and I had a sharp pain in my lower stomach region. Did an ultrasound and found multiple small cysts on both my ovaries. The gyno just nonchalantly said I had pcos and the only thing I can do is take birth control pills. It’s just very frustrating knowing that theirs no actual solution other then to work out and eat healthy which I already do. I feel so alone in this and helpless. I see a lot of people advertising herbal teas but who knows if it’s actually legit. Sorry for rambling on. Being diagnosed with this just gives me so much anxiety and stress

  • Hi I found out I have PCOS n abt a year now but I never did a research abt it n now I’m doing a research abt it n I feel so good watching this video, because my doctor told me she don’t want to give me pills cause it would cause problem for me n she said just exercise n diet but she never told me it was serious n now I research abt it n I feel good n sad At the same time

  • I’m 15 and my mom has it so I knew I had a high chance. She had her cyst burst and hers is very painful. Me on the other had no symptoms. I didn’t have my period for abt 1 year. When i finally went in I had a 10 lb cyst on my fallopian tube. And a smaller 5 cm one on my ovary. I had surgery 2 days laters. I broke down and cried. When I was first told. They had to take out my fallopian tube so I only have one and at 15 it might not affect me now. But I know my future self is gonna struggle. It’s hard knowing my chances of having kids is low and if I get another one on my other fallopian tube I can never had kids.������������ but I’m on birth controle and I had a recent ultra sound and it was clear. ��������

  • I was diagnosed that I have PCOS since I was 13, kept drinking those birth control pill ever since. But I stopped taking them 1.5 years ago. I have gained almost 20kilos.

    This morning I went to the doctor again to have a full check up as a grownup, I was so scared. But I’m glad that I found out that I’m not along. Be strong ladies ������

  • I had to figure this out for myself as well. Doctors did the same thing to me. After I got the ultrasound result I saw that I had pcos. So I started a research

  • I’m 11year old and I got my first period on January but on the next month it didnt came but came on April then it’s didn’t came in the months but came the next 2 months. It came on July today this morning. And quite concern if I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

  • I have a lot of tiny cysts on my ovary does that mean I have PCOS? I was getting my period every month regularly before I got on birth control that the doctor prescribed, I didn’t have excess hair or a lot more acne than usual? Im scared about infertility having something to do.. can anyone help?

  • I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 17, and my dr described it to me like I had chocolate chip cookies for ovaries rather than sugar cookies…Then every dr after that has never fully explained what’s going on. Thank you for this video! ��

  • You mentioned there is a “rare” symptom of PCOS which is heavy bleeding. I’m one of those people and I’m absolutely fed up. I bleed so heavy for like 20+ days. I am anemic now. I had a D&C as well. My insulin levels are 375 my doctor isn’t helping what so ever. She is absolutely HORRIBLE. I’m almost 20 and she was talking about a hysterectomy. What do I do?

  • i have PCOS but i’m having non-stop bleeding instead of no periods #facepalm i’m always waiting on when i’m going to stop bleeding. i’m so tired of it.

  • I’m finally going to see a gynecologist after 1.5 yrs of having no period. �� Honestly, I don’t miss having a period. But my acne is BAD!

  • I just found this video now, but as someone who has suffered with PCOS I thought I’d add my 2 pence.

    I am in the UK where healthcare is of a much higher quality and more patient centric nature, so I knew most of this. But it still took a long time to get a diagnosis, I had about half a dozen blood tests from the age of 15 to 21 which all came back ‘inconclusive’, sometimes the doctor blamed me for not tellign them what stage of my cycle I was, how I as uspposed to know when I’v enever had a ‘regular’ period in my life I don’t know. But then around my 21st birthday I was doubled up in agony for a good 6 hours and ended up in hospital. The radiologist took one look at my ovaries on ultrasound and told me they looked like bunches of grapes.

    16 years later I am type 1 diabetic as well as several other things, and having a coil put in was the best solution for me, PCOS-wise. The doctors never did tell me exactly what was causing the pain back when I was hospitalised, but I can only assume that it was cyst related. They have been quiet since, until a few days ago and I was back in hospital but thankfully not for a week this time, but sent home with suppositories as nomal pain managment is unavailable for me (long story, but spinal inuries HURT!)

    I just wish I knew what, besides ovarian tortion, caused the pain. (thankfully tortion was ruled out both times!)

    I was diagnosed of HERPES virus and i have tried all I can to get cured but all to no avail,, until I saw a post in a health forum about a herbalist man who prepare herbal medications to cure all kind of diseases including HERPES virus,at first I doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try,when I contacted this herbalist via his email and he prepared a HERPES herbal cure and sent it to me via UPS courier courier service, when I received this herbal medicine, he gave me step by direction on how to apply it,after applying the way I was instructed, I was totally cured of this deadly disease called HERPES, all thanks to Dr rokpokpo this great herbal doctor via WhatsApp him Via: 2347054115931
