I have poly cystic ovarian syndrome also known as PCOS. I first learned that I have it when I was 18. For almost 4 months, my menstruation is not normal it is either I am spotting for weeks or none at all. I got worried so I consulted my physician and she referred us to an ob-gynecologist. I got my first ever pelvic ultrasound and with that, she said I have PCOS and she prescribed birth control pills. I took it for a year and it regulated my menstruation. Currently, I stopped taking the pills already for some reasons.
Even with or without PCOS we should be living a healthy lifestyle. However with us, it is actually a MUST. We do gain weight easily so we have to control what we eat. We also have to exercise for at least 30 minutes everyday. According to the articles that I read, it would be hard for us to conceive. I worry about that of course, but based on my latest ultrasound my gynecologist told me that I am ovulating so hopefully it wouldn’t be hard when my partner and I decided that it is time.
There is nothing to worry about PCOS. We just have to educate ourselves so that we’ll understand everything that is happening to our body. Of course, we should also ask our ob-gynecologist when we have questions. I’ll be sharing the result of my latest pelvic ultrasound which was done last August 2015.
