Symptoms of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
Without birth control you’ll experience irregular menstrual cycles, ovulation problems, infertility, cystic acne, abnormal hair growth on the face, chin, upper lip, nipples, back and belly. Stretch marks develop as early as age 12. Muscle builds easily in the buttock, thighs and calves. Arm numbness (falling asleep) at night or while blow drying your hair. Feet tenderness when standing, skin tags around the neck under the arm pits and bra line. If you have PCOS you can exercise 1 to 2 hours a day and consume only 1000 calories and still gain weight.
This condition is only diagnosed by your physician if you are having infertility problems. 60% of people with PCOS have infertility, the other 40% do not have infertility and therefore will not ever be diagnosed or treated while the weight gain continues to get worse. A person may only have a few of these symptoms and still have this condition.
We are here to tell you that you can lose weight and the symptoms will go away with proper treatment.
