    Post Trying to find a Community?

    You are not alone!
    I was noticing how many women felt alone in their life long journey of PCOS, when in fact there are SO many women out there.
    I decided to create a community on tumblr. So far we are up to nearly 100 women, and so I decided to branch out even more and create a youtube collab channel. This is when 5 women take on a day of the week to post a video on the specific topic. We have women in all different places of their PCOS journey, but we need some subscribers!
    If you are curious at all please take a look at these two communities and see if they are something you might be interested in!

    Hello! Thank you for the links...I just joined this site today and am slowly getting used to the idea of talking about my PCOS. I was diagnosed in February of this year so everything is still fresh and sinking in. So far I have simply been trying to absorb any information about PCOS that I can get my hands on, but I would really like to talk to other women who are going through similar difficulties.

    Hello. Well my OBGYN recently told me I have polycystic ovaries. Is this different than PCOS?

    PCOS just means polycystic ovary syndrome...the syndrome means it can have many different symptoms and not everyone diagnosed with PCOS has the same symptoms. Hope that answers your question!

    Hi Hollycysticovary! I'm new to this forum as well and can very much relate to you (except I'm not TTC). I have a beard and wax it off (when I'm feeling up to it). I actually get so embarressed about the hair on my face that I avoid going out to lunch with coworkers in the sunlight, which reveals a lot of the lighter hairs! I too feel like a failure. I feel like it's my fault I'm living with this condition because of the food I ate the life style I have lived. But I tell myself there is no going back and the only way I can get through this is to love myself enough to take on this battle which seems mostly uphill at first. My endocrinologist told me I was insulin resistant because I obviously have pcos, although my blood test for blood sugar was normal. She wanted me to try to lose weight instead of taking metformin because pcos can be tamed by proper diet and exercise. Cutting out sugar really helped me. Last year I gained 40lbs. In the six weeks I shunned sugar (very hard to do) I lost 27lbs. My skin was better, my man hair grew back slower, I felt better, my mood stabilized, depression & anxiety waned, my blood pressure went down ten digits. Losing weight, although hard, is very helpful. I think winning the IR battle is the first place to start. Of course talk to your doctors about it, especially if you're TTC. Sorry this was long winded! I probably said more than I needed to. (0_o)
