My PCOS Study & Treatment

Hi! I'm Jackie and I have PCOS. What is PCOS?

WebMD describes it very well whey they say, "PCOS, or polycystic ovarian syndrome, is a common hormonal disorder in women that with interferes with the growth and release of eggs from the ovaries, or ovulation. It is the most common cause of infertility among women. PCOS occurs when a woman's body overproduces sex hormones, called androgens. The hormone imbalance prevents fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries from breaking open and releasing mature eggs. The fluid-filled sacs bunch together, causing many tiny cysts. Symptoms of PCOS include missed periods, abnormal facial and body hair growth, acne, and weight gain."

In other words, a pain in the butt!

I've have struggled with this condition since I was 12 (1992) and it's pretty much dictated how I lead my life. I'm tired it controlling me.. I want to control it!

I have been invited to participate in a study for the next six months. This study will included a certain PCOS treatment. I've started this blog to document this PCOS treatment in attempts to help others. Please feel free to send me your comments. I would love to hear how others are doing and their opinions on what I will be experiencing.

  1. Hi,

    I have a girlfriend who has PCOS. I dont know what treatment she is taking at the moment, but she started going to the gym regularly last year and got her periods from a month to 3 days in 4 months! I dont know the foods she eats(long distance relationship), but I bought her some Noni juice and Omega 48 which she says help her a lot too.

    I found some interesting info here, but my gf is not very communicative about PCOS lately so I wonder if you can read it and perhaps share your thoughts on the info provided there:
