Wow, you poor lady. :(

Seriously look into the herb vitex. I had pcos about 10 yrs ago. That was when I was overweight and not really healthy.
After some time I lost a lot of weight and really started getting into eating right and taking vitamins.
After so so long I found this herb vitex that I started taking because even after having lost a lot of weight my periods still were not regular. It took a few months at least to get back to normal.
I don't take it anymore now and haven't for a couple of years. I'm in shape now and eat good and get exercise and am very normal thankfully.
Of course, I don't know if you are taking medicines or anything, but as with any herbs you think about taking it's a very good idea to look into whether it would be safe for you to take.
I never went to a doctor or anything. I just followed how I was feeling and went along with what I felt was right.
I wish you the best!
Hello Angelina,
I was diagnosed with pcos when I was fourteen. Thankfully, I had a great doctor, whom I still have to this day, and she knows what pcos is and knows what to do and how to treat it. My symptoms where severe depression, irregular periods, I would go nine months with nothing then a month and a half with a period, very fun in middle school (sarcastic) and I had horrible acne and fluctuating weight. My doctor put me on Yasmin birth control for regular periods. I have tried not taking, just because I wanted to see if I could could do things naturally, but I gained about twenty pounds, depression was horrible, acne was insane and I didn't even get a period. I tried just a regular birth control, same thing.
The reason why Yasmin works for women with pcos is because it has an anti-testosterone hormone in it and pcos is all about excess testosterone which causes the excess facial hair, weight gain, and the actual egg for your period from being released. Pretty confusing, I know. I've been on Yasmin for about six years and I love it, I will never change until I try and get pregnant. I also take glucophage (metformin) to help lower blood sugar, help lose weight, help prevent diabetes.
I am really sorry to hear about your miscarraige, I imagine that is hard to deal with, as well as your surgeries. My mom had a miscarraige after my older sister, if she had it, I might not be here, I am the youngest, I think god has plans and I was meant to be here for a reason. Oh, sad to hear about the appendix as well, when my mom gave birth to my older brother, she hemmohraged, and the doctor was, lets say an a-hole about it. She could have sued, but she was just greatful to be alive.
Anyhoo, pcos is very frustrating, but we are not alone! Hope I helped:]
