Hi guys, I've recently joined this website to talk to others with pcos and get their advice and Today I need some advice! First I'll tell you my story.
When I was 9 I started my periods (no one was more surprised and scared than me). Starting my periods ruined my childhood and I hated being on, by the time I was 10/11 I started noticing facial hair, and this was no peach fuzz it was a beard. No imagine what that can do to a child who hasn't even started highschool. Obviously I got picked on but I tried not letting it get to me. Eventually when I turned 14 they diagnosed me with pcos from the physical symptoms (obese, hirsutism, acne etc) and the highly tertesterone (idk how to spell lol). In high school my periods were kind of regular but they were heavy and painful until 16 they started to come and go less. That's when the doctor gave me dianette for a year and a half there were no results so I gave up. Then she gave me the combined pill and estrogen pill that improved my acne but gave me horrible mood swings and really tender Breast. So 2 years ago I decided to lose weight and get my life back on track she put me on a pill which I forgot the name of and put me up for 3 months gym membership. I didn't see the results that I wanted so I gave up again. And recently now that I'm 22 I'm being harsh on myself and I want to lose weight and fix myself up I've got an appointment on Sunday and I'm actually so scared idk what to say to this doctor (someone I haven't seen before) this was an advance one I booked I've been ringing for a while. I'm just so scared that he/she will judge me I just want to give up before I even started. I haven't had my period in 3/4 months it's not just affecting me physically but also mentally I'm always having a strop with anyone I'm hardly happy which is sad because I used to be a really bubbly girl to family o try to be the same so they don't notice but some days I can't keep up. I just have no idea what to do or tell the new doctor. I'm so sorry that this post is so long. This is the first time I'm telling the whole story
