Hi all, my 22 year old girl was diagnosed with PCOS 5 years ago. Treatment by medical professionals dismissive & disheartening to date. Symptoms inc: Extra hair growth, swelling of her tummy to the point she is in severe pain & is asked if pregnant constantly, massive weight gain, acne all over body, huge boil like masses which puss/smell & scar badly between breasts/groin area, neck, thighs...
She is severely depressed, embarrassed and emotional. Self help has included joining a slimming club and being defeated week after week after staying on plan. Exercising every day yet no 'physical' improvements visible.
Medical treatment/Medication has included: Metformin, several antibiotics, birth control injections, 1 scan, 5 discussions around 'life style changes!!'
Any advice/pointing in the right direction/other personal similar experiences would be so very appreciated...Thank you to anyone reading this post. Love one very anxious & worried Mum x
