Abigail’s Story (PCOS)

Abigail's Story (PCOS)I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 15, it started with just random irregular periods, pelvic pains, and the hair growth, but it has grown into weight gain and a lot of pain. I have random pelvic pains and it gets overwhelming at times.

I’ve been struggling with this for six years and it is hard to deal with at times, but I try to think about the people who help me through it. I’ve gained weight from this and normally people are just like, “Oh, just go lose some weight.” Well, I am sorry, it’s not that simple. If you don’t have the right guidance losing weight is a lot harder then you think it is.

There are times where I just want to give up, but I just think that I will get through this and that’s what keeps me going in this constant fight with PCOS. I don’t ever plan on giving up.

  1. I know this is a terrible option, but what if you had a hysterectomy? Would that take care of the pain and problems? I had one when I was 29. Just wondering

  2. I was told that I have pcos when I was twenty I’m now almost 31 I have three children. When I was first diagnosed with this the doctor asked if I had ever been pregnant I told her yes I had three kids she told me that she was shocked cause most women with this have a hard time getting pregnant. I didn’t get this til after I had my youngest son. And get this I knw it sounds crazy but my periods were always normal and on time but after my last child my husband had a vasectomy and the day he had this done was the last normal period I had. And it was shortly after I was diagnosed with the pcos, I knw it sounds crazy but this is very true. I even asked about a hysterectomy the des said that wldnt help. To get on birth control to regulate my periods and lose weight cause I was never big but I went from 125 pounds up to 254 pounds. I hve just recently been able to start losing wright and my periods are now coming every month again not at sametime every month but at least I am having them..
