Sometimes I wonder if these doctors had a clue at all what we go through. They may read it in some text book but they have absolutely no idea what we deal with on a daily basis. Ok, we are overweight, there is a cause for us being overweight, we are depressed because our bodies are not working the way they should be. We are depressed because so many people tell us to lose weight and no matter what we try it seems to never go away. We have mood swings and when we try to explain them everyone looks at us like we are crazy. As I said I think doctors are completely clueless.
You have joined a good group here though and we will support you and offer you as much help that we can through our own experiences. Education is the key and if you have to print off information for your family and your doctors by all means do so.
In my family, I believe this whole thing about PCOS stopped with me. My mom had problems with cysts on her ovaries, as well as my grandmother, and her grandmother. What is weird is all of us were the middle child. My sisters never had a problem with it. They both were very fertile, never had a problem with periods, only problem they both have is they are both borderline diabetics. All of us, in my family, who have had problems with ovaries all have very low blood sugar. I am not saying PCOS is hereditary but it sure looks that way.
Never let life stand in your way, get out and live it!
