Welcome Saba! I've always known Saba to just mean morning in arabic, but that's based on what my parents have told me too! Everyone in this team is very supportive and there is a lot of information here about dealing with PCOS. I actually had laser hair removal, but it all came back. :-( Now I'm taking metformin and spironolactone which is supposed to help with unwanted hair. If you have any questions feel free to sparkmail me!

There are also medications to help combat the symptoms such as hair that we really don't want.

I suppose so... My parents tell me Saba means the mornings breeze.

Male doctors have no idea! I went in to get consulted for laser hair removal. One of the female doctors suggested that I go get tested for PCOS. I decided to hold off on paying for laser hair removal and go get tested. The head docotor at the laser place decides to call my home and tell me that getting tested is a waste of time and it would not help my life become better in any way. I was so angry to get a call like that!

Anyways thank you for the welcome! lol

Saba as in "morning" in Arabic? Welcome!

I know. I have had sooo many doctors blow me off on the whole PCOS secondary sex characteristics bit. Most fo them don't see it as important. Male doctors have no idea how much it affects women's self esteem.

Well, you've come to the right place!

Hiya, my name is Saba. I have been overweight as long as I can remember. Then as I grew older I noticed that I had to get my face waxed more then others and I had irregular periods. It's been hard not knowing what was wrong with me. I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS. I am glad to finally have an answer, but it is hard to live with. Hopefully with the help of SparkPeople I will be able to control my weight and gain good health.
