Welcome to the group and I'm also post menopausal (hit menopause before I was 30, being young and being in it that means I have another 50 plus years a head of me to live with it).

As to how it can happen, simple some women just do not have as many eggs as others and once you run your course you go into menopause, for other's its more hormonal and you might appear to be in menopause but really aren't (bit more complicated to figure out or so I'm told).

You are also not doomed to be over weight thanks to the PCOS and menopause, it just means you have to work that much harder to find what will work for you. I've been working on a form of the GI plan though the Canadian Diabetic Association (since I'm also diabetic) since the start of the year I'm down two pounds so far so good, since last year all I lost was a single pound.

Hi there! I'm krissy! So, i found out i had pcos about 2 years ago. This was after 8 years of going to doctors and trying to find out what wrong. So, FINALLY, i have a great doctor that listens to me. However, there really isnt a lot of options for women that have pcos. so I have been on metformin and birth control pills since Halloween and have not lost ANYTHING! I eat well and i stay busy. So my doctor sent me to see a endocrinologist. Turns out that I'm also post menopausal? How in the world does that even happen????? Anyone have any ideas? I dont want to be a fatty for the rest of my life emoticon emoticon
