I'm a newbie also. Live in IA, USA, soon to celebrate 25 years with my DH, and have 2 wonderful children due to a great fertility DR DX with PCOs for close to 12 years now and have not been doing well with controlling the SX. I know what I need to do and I am committed to doing it. By this time next year, those who haven't seen me for a while are not going to recognize me, I will have my lap back and my chol. and BP will be low normal (how's that for postiive talk- ha). Looking forward to getting to know everyone.
I so understand everything you said! LOL! Like you, we are trying to get my weight down to get preggy also. So much hasn't helped- but I am hoping that if I exercise more than I've been, and reallllly stick my mind in exercise mode, it will help!
This is a GREAT group!! WIth the holiday's I've not been here much- but really, such awesome ladies!!

Hi and Msxralbs and LADIES4CHRIST... Happy to meet you both! I wasn't diagnosed until later even though I have probably had it for a while now. Maybe because I had kids no one considered it. It was mentioned when I was about 38 but I was over 40 when they finally told me I had it. I'm on Metformin and have lost about 29lbs.. It would probably be more if I could get an excercise thing going on a regular basis.. LOL
Hop on over to the main thread and see what's going on.. There is lots of info and support there.

Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. Im 30 yrs old been dealing with PCOS for a few yrs. I did not find out I had it until my late 20s. Soooooo that means I lost hair where I needed it and grew some where I sure didnt need it LOL. Along with the hair lose, came the weight(well the weigh also had to do with some meds I was on :O) ) This year I need to loose wieght so that I can improve my chances at getting preggyyyyy. Im so glad I found this site, and this group. I hope to meet some wonderful supportive people here.
