I am 23 and was diagnosed with PCOS in Jan 2012. I was thinking for a long time i had it as i have dark, thick hair everywhere, belly, face, full legs etc, bad acne face, back and chest, and most other symptoms. i only went to GP to look further into it when menses got longer and heavier. normally went for 7-9days now goes for upto 24 days on a 25 day cycle (sucks, alot!). i had about 4 months of continuously blood tests and have had ultasounds to confirm it.
6 months after being diagnosed i finally have seen a gyno, and the only thing she told me is that "your too fat to be treated for PCOS" i must admit i am overweight (110kg, 139cm height) but my GP said i wouldnt have a problem and just to try and loose as much weight as i can (the more i loose the better chances i have of falling naturally). the gyno has said i need to loose a minimum 50kg before they will look at treating me for PCOS as no hospital in my city will accept me at the size i am.
other than the PCOS i am healthy, no alergies, no other medical conditions, am reasonably active and eat well. i have always been a big girl and have always had trouble loosing weight.
has anyone else had an experience like this or have any ideas about what i could do?
i really want children and was absolutly devistated when told i may not be able to.
