    Default What happens to us after menopause?

    Do we have less symptoms of PCOS? Anyone know?

    There are some studies that say that the symptoms decrease. I'm running to work, but when I get home, I'll find them and post.

    Please do! I would so love it if that were true, because I'm getting closer to menopause.

    This study isn't about 'post menopause', but it addresses pcos'ers as we age...

    As one who has PCOS and menopause... NO. At least not for me. I still have excess hair growth, weight issues are WORSE, thinning hair on head, skin tags, and it all. I just don't have periods. Otherwise it's as though I still have it. I have been in menopause (fully, as my ovaries, cervix, uterus were removed) for about 7 years now. Acne is just as bad. In some ways, it is worse.

    I think it might vary among women. I was just diagnosed with peri-menopause last year and I've noticed a decrease in PCOS symptoms. Hair growth has slowed a lot. I don't have to pluck my chin hairs every day-only once a week now and even the hair growth on my legs has slowed down. I shave them every couple of weeks. Oh and I don't have to shave my toes anymore. I've noticed that I'm not losing as much hair on my head as before. As far as weight, I'm on insulin which makes it hard to lose weight. But when I follow a very strict diet and exercise regularly I can lose weight easily.

    This article shines some hope. Hopefully by the time menopause rolls around for some of us, there will be further reseach and more assistance to us! I had never really thought about menopause before until I seen this. I would have liked to believe symptoms would decrease.

    So it kind of sounds like we have a 50/50 shot of a little relief. Here's hoping I get the good side of the coin and find some relief after my surgery! I would love to not have to pluck chin hairs every day....and watch the hair on my thighs grow more than a man's....

    My mom didn't have PCOS that we know of had her hysterectomy 10+ yrs ago her body hair stopped fast. She doesn't have ot shave her legs anymore at all. I could only dream!
