Unfortunately for me when I was on the pill (before knowing I had PCOS) I still had the hair, the acne, dandriff and thinning hair (it's not bald like just not as thick as it once was). Off of the pill however, things were still the same.
It wasn't until our house cauht fire and we lived in a hotel for 3 months (until repairs were finished) that I missed my period. My doctor said that stress can make PCOS advance or the symptoms get worse or both. In a good light the house fire making me miss my period is what had me seeing a doctor and being diagnosed.
As soon as I started the pill and metformin I got my period back 3 weeks later (no idea why I even missed it lol), the weight is comming off, I'm not as hungry, my acne has cleared up, the hair is clearing up, my dandruff is gone, and I may be wrong but I think my hair is even getting thicker.
For me I think the pill wasn't enough and that meformin is what made the difference. However, my hormone issue is with testosterone and metformin helps to reduce the testosterone levels in the body. So that may explain why the pill didn't help me.
No More Excuses!
