OK, so I thought I would post this here b/c I'm pretty sure you ladies are the only ones who will understand how flippin exciting this is for me... today I got my period on my own - with no assistance from drugs - in almost 10 years!!!!
I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years back and told that is why I probably rarely if ever I had my period (back when I was 16 my Dr. put me on BCP to regulate me b/c I would go so long without one. tried to get off it a couple times over the 10 yrs but never had a period so was told I had to go back on it by Dr.)... but this past year I got serious about trying to lose weight (b/c Dr. said it would help with PCOS symptoms) and went to see a new Dr. and went OFF BCP 6 weeks ago and to my utter surprise and joy I got my period today!!! I'm still shocked....
I wrote this here b/c I think you ladies are probably the only ones who can understand why I am excited to get my period when so many dread it haha...
Anyways, I have hope now I guess... and maybe this will give hope to someone else struggling with PCOS today.
Love to you all!
