Welcome to my community.

It was going to be called Living with PCOS but i pushed the button without noticing i'd gone over my letter limit. Oh well you can't win them all.

A little about me.

My name is Nicola
I am 22 years old
I live in Scotland
i found out i had PCOS at the age of 15.
i got put on dianette then but have just recently been taken off it because my doctor thinks it has damaged my liver slightly (mainly because i've been on it too long.)
I have all the usual symptoms (hair in unwanted places, weight gain that will not come off, break outs of spots etc.)
I also have depression and social anxiety disorder (my doctor thinks because i went through all of this in my teenage years and i'm a highly sensitive person)

I hope we can all be open and honest with each other in here.
I'll try to be around as much as i can to help anyone.

Hey can i add you, I can totally relate.
I am 20, turning 21.
Diagnosed with pcos when I was 15.
I take dianne.
I feel like it not working ...
I have facial/body hair ..
acne, overweight etc ....
I have lost alot of weight but I am still 15kg off my ideal weight.
i am very sensitive about my facial hair, I can't ever leave the house unless my face is covered ion makeup, I get really anxious about it.
Its always nice to 'meet' other felloe ppl with pcos, as I do not know anyone personally with pcos.
