Depression/ anxiety with pcos


Does anyone suffer with anxiety and depression with pcos. I am wondering whether mine could be related to my pcos. My hormones seem out of control. I feel great on rare occasion I have a period.

Would going on the pill help this?My pcos seems worse after coming off the mirena ( worse acne, facial hair depression etc).

I will discuss with doctor just wanted thoughts on this.

Oh yes ... the combined contraceptive pill may help keep your moods feel more level but doesn't work for everyone. Depression and anxiety is a symptom of pcos so is quite common. I am on the combined pill and I am less moody and am also on anti depressants too (low dose) as it helps hugely with my anxiety levels.

Should also say I take 2-3 months of the combined pill on the trot as it keeps the symptoms even more at bay.
