Hi have you had any tests?

A few helpful things you can do to to ease the symptoms are try a low gi diet, try to avoid white carbs like bread, rice and sugar. Processed food isn't helpful either. Also exercise and being on the pill can regulate your periods and ease the pain.

You have made a start. Giving up smoking is not easy so don't be hard on yourself.

It took me a while to get my self into gear, I have been needing to start for ages, putting on weight and feeling like crap. I had to start eating better cos every time I went out for dinner with my mates I was being sick afterwards, don't know why and can't drink.

Have you tried a different pill?

Are you up to date on your smear tests as well? Have you been investigated properly for endo as pain generally is endo rather than pcos.

The combined pill can help with most of the pcos symptoms especially if you take 3 months on the trot. Depression and anxiety are a symptom of pcos so don't feel ashamed to go to your GP and discuss anti depressants, I was them with PND after having my son for a few years then came off them for about 5 years and went back on them a few years ago as I was struggling. In my view they are excellent and really help bring back the light at the end of the tunnel.
