Welcome, Heather! I have found SparkPeople to be a great place for support and also to raise questions (and find their answers). Over the past 18 months, I have lost a little over 50 pounds (still have 50-60 to go) but I have been able to go off birth control pills and have *almost* regular cycles (at least every 5-6 weeks which is much more regular than my every 5-6 months that they used to be!). Please ask if you have questions - or speak up when your motivation is waning... we're all here to help each other!

Hello everyone! My name is Heather, I'm 25 and have had PCOS since puberty, I suppose. I was diagnosed when I was 15, and they didn't seem to have any answers for me back then. I was put on birth control for a couple years for my irregular cycle (sometimes I'd bleed for weeks at a time). When I quit taking birth control, my period completely stopped, and I didn't have my menses at all for about 5 years. Then it'd come a couple times a year, until now, I'm still not regular, but this is the closest it's been.
I have not seen a obgyn in about 7 years. I have never taken anything except birth control. I cannot afford to / I do not have insurance.
On top of the before mentioned, I have the symptoms: infertility, acne / oily skin, hirsutism, weight problems of course, and insulin / thyroid problems (what those are exactly, I can't say because I haven't seen a doctor).
It's been a very sobering experience to be told at age 15 that you may never be able to have children. I have no wish to conceive any time within the next two years at least, but since I met my boyfriend, I've had a change of heart about giving up hope on ever having one at all.
Lots of love to everyone here.
