Hi. My name is Jenny and although I haven't been offically diagnosed with PCOS, I have suspected that it is what I have for over a year now. I am supposed to have health insurance within a few months so I'm going to bring up my concerns with a doctor.

I started to worry about PCOS when I started growing hair on my face. I also started getting skin tags and was having trouble losing weight. I always thought the weight loss was me not tryng hard enough but when I noticed the other symptoms as well as having "dirty" looking spots around my neck I started to worry and do some research and found that a lot of my symptoms sound like PCOS. I also don't get regular periods.

Anyways, I'm reading the book, "The PCOS diet plan" by Hillary Wrght just to learn more about it. Even though I haven't been diagnosed yet, I want to learn as much as can about dealing with this without medication. So far I have read a lot about Insulin Resistance and the affect it has on the body. A low GI diet has been mentioned as well.

Anyways, it's nice to meet you all and it helps to know I'm not alone in this.

Much love,
Jenny
