Every two months in the past two years, I will type in the same message to my editors: “Oh no, other PCOS time. Work from home to deal with this mess.” It was a big excuse, it was not a lie.
I’m not saying I got sick (though I did it once or twice). I could not keep up with the underlying subject-comedic flow, it was 100% true. It was ifyy diagnosis. I want to say PCOS (short for polycystic ovaries syndrome) because there is a name for illness that makes me feel more and more felt. But, of course, I do not know if I have a PCOS. Two doctors said that I did it almost certainly – and one said that I probably would not do it. POSC Hormonal Disorder, which contains a list of laundry for potential symptoms, including junkie deadlines like mine, extra facial hair or other “male” pattern hair growth or balding, and severe acne. As a result of this condition, weight gain, infertility, diabetes, liver inflammation, high blood pressure, high blood pressure, and abnormal triglyceride or cholesterol levels – and therefore risk of heart disease, sleep apnea, depression, and endometrial cancer. Although doctors are still not sure about the cause of PCOS, they know that it is in the case of Malo Clinic, the excess of endogenous extra (“male” is called “male” hormone like torostone) and marked by additional insulin.
Nevertheless, those who have PCOS will not have these symptoms. Some women who have PCOS, they increase weight during adolescence. nothing. There are some who struggle to get pregnant syndrome. There is no problem with some breeding. Some face full of beard or face, and others have baby-soft skin. The collection of symptoms is so varied, no wonder that doctors struggle to agree on any diagnosis. In my case, some of the symptoms point to my first doctor on a PCOS diagnosis. I heard the word for the first time, I was sitting at the clinic of my university. I was 21 years old, uncertain and bleeding from my vagina for about six months. I went to the school clinic to expect someone to know how to stop it, but the health care providers were worried there. Have I ever heard of polycystic ovary syndrome? They asked. How much weight did I have achieved so much? What about hair growth?
I asked them what they wanted to know: I achieved a lot of weight at the age of 12 and since then I was a “big lady” and my hair was probably a little thin but still fine. Then, they sign me for a transvaginal ultrasound to test my ovary system. A few weeks later, I was lying on a test table with an ultrasound wand of my personal bit. Finally, I was cleared-no airway. Health clinic doctors advised me to lose weight, and after a period of time I stopped thinking about it. At the time, I do not know if it is known as polycystic ovary syndrome but you actually have ovules on the ovaries system. For an official PCOS diagnosis, you must have at least two: Multiple implications on one or both of the ovaries on the basis of the US Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS), high levels of your blood’s orrogen and irregular times. ).
So my first vagina ultrasound did not show any cyst, so I was not PCOS-free. Five years later, a doctor returned to the situation again. This time, I went for a checkup because I had to close the duration. And when they show (usually every three to four months), they were so heavy that I had to change my pad or monthly cup per hour. I could not go anywhere for bleeding through my pants, I was so tired that I was almost frustrated when I climbed the stairs and my hair became very thin. My primary care doctor also saw the dark patches of skin made behind my neck, which he said was a sign of insulin resistance (it is called acanthosis nigricans). With symptoms of this combo, he suggested that I could see the intravenous specialist, because I had almost certainly PCOS.
So think about my first endocrinologist. She draws blood; If I want to know about my weight gain history, my period will be met and how long they will continue (at that time, every three months of the month for 10 days); And my skin has been checked for signs of acne or weird hair growth (two thick, dark chin hair that I do not count clearly as each time I tear them). When my blood test comes back, it showed high insulin and slightly elevated testosterone. It was enough for her, and so I had an official PCOS diagnosis.
He is also a provider of metformin, a drug that is commonly used for diabetes treatment, but is sometimes prescribed for PCOS to help in insulin resistance. The medication will help me lose weight and get back to my schedule. The problem? He did not actually send the prescription to my pharmacy. He was cold and my symptoms “myself” gave me the implied meaning to achieve too much weight. So, I chose not to push the issue. I do not want to see him again anyway.
A few months later, in the new insurance, I met a new intestine. She did the same round of blood tests and asked me the same question about my weight, my time, my hair, and my skin. Although everything seemed alike, this doctor was not sure that I had PCOS. What I absolutely did was insulin resistance and severe anemia. The lack of iron can explain my thin hair, he said and can go winky for all types of time. He has also defined metformin and suggested that I talk to a gynecologist to control birth control, which can control my monthly cycle.
For those who have PCOS, birth control works like a band-ed. There is no cure for PCOS according to the planned parentheath. Despite the conditions, the best people are one way to manage their symptoms. Hormonal birth control reduces hormones which control acne and regular routine, which reduces the risk of endometrial cancer. Doctors often recommend that people in PCOS reduce weight, because weight loss reduces blood sugar, insulin resistance, improves balance hormones and helps in reproduction.
Unfortunately, there can be a double sharp sword telling someone with a PCOS to lose weight that it is incredibly easy to lose weight and makes it very difficult to lose – so metafarmin is often even set to help with it. Those who have excess hair on their chin and upper lip can get electrolysis and can use hair removal creams to handle signs and can also help in anti-endocrine medicines.
For me, for PCOS, the treatment plan includes recommendations for both metformin and birth control, as well as better eating and more practice. Still, I do not have an official diagnosis. Six years later I first heard about PCOS, I came back to the beginning, again waiting for transvaaginal ultrasound to check for the chest again. Last month, my birth control was regulated for controlling my gynecology, but 100% were not sure that I have PCOS. He will say, if he has a chest on my ovaries, he will say. If not, then there is no real interpretation for my peculiar time.
