Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

(((((Roomies Wow's))))))
I am going to need some help from all of you if you dont mind. Recently found out that my son's (Travis, who is in Iraq) fiancee' Rachel was diagnosed with this. So if any of you have previous knowledge or anything useful I may share with her it would be great. I know many of you from over the years and have never let me down! Ya'll are the ones when I need info, help and/or guidance I can count on.
Thank you
Have a great day!

(((((( WolfAngel)))))) If you just type in polycystic ovarian syndrome, a lot of infomational sites will pop up. Bet they will help inform you & Travis'g/f about new treatments that are going on. Good luck to her.

Yeah, if you can help her find as much info as possible, that'd help. And we'll keep her/them in our thoughts and prayers.

Amen. I would say (and almost did) that Mom was a nurse and she may know. But, as of Feb. I can't anymore. However I have a room mate and HE Is a nurse. He may know.

PCOS is a difficult diagnosis to deal with mentally. I can say this with truth, as I also suffer with PCOS. Fortunately, there are solutions. Strong birth control can keep symptoms from occurring, especially those that are in the form of a 90 day cycle as opposed to the normal 30 day cycle. This has been my symptom control choice for a few years now, and I have not had NEARLY the pain and problems that I had beforehand. Good luck to you in passing along the information, and good luck to Rachel and Travis in dealing with the disease.
